Hundreds of thousands of Australians lose no less than $ 2,000 annually while fines are imposed – but politicians will enjoy a healthy pay rise
- The penalty rates on Sunday are reduced from 180% of wages to 165%
- Change is part of a Fair Work Commission plan to boost employment
- But union executives have slammed the change and said that workers are not happy
Hundreds of thousands of Australians will lose as much as $ 2,000 a year as a result of fines.
Sunday's fines are being reduced from 180 percent of wages to 165 percent on July 1.
The change is part of a Fair Work Commission plan to make it cheaper for small businesses to open at the weekend and encourage them to recruit more people.
The national minimum wage will increase by three percent from July 1 to $ 740.80 per week (inventory)
But the union bosses have made the change hard by saying that employees are not happy with the cuts.
"Working people need jobs that are safe and pay them fairly – no more cuts that make them unable to pay for the essence of life," said Secretary-Secretary, Jo-anne Schofield, in a statement.
Meanwhile, federal MPs have received a two-percent salary increase from July 1, just as 700,000 retailers and hospitality industry employees are forced to lower their fines.
The Independent Remuneration Tribunal said in its decision – covering all public functions in its jurisdiction, including federal judges and officials – that it had taken into account economic restraint, lower wage growth in a broader sense, and government policy for government negotiation for the workplace.
& # 39; The tribunal notes that several indicators predict that wage growth is expected to increase gradually, lagging behind economic growth & # 39 ;, it said Thursday.
& # 39; Wage growth has modestly increased over the last year, with reliable measures indicating that wage increases in the private sector are now equal to or outperforming the public sector. & # 39;
Prime Minister Scott Morrison is expected to receive a punch of just over $ 10,000 a year on top of his current $ 538,460.
MPs and senators are currently receiving a basic annual salary of $ 207,100.
