Penalty Rates

Debate resumed on the motion:

That this House:

(1) recognises the reliance of many families and individuals across our community on penalty rates as a key component of their income, particularly our lowest-paid workers;

(2) acknowledges that work-life balance is important to the health and welfare of workers, families and our community;

(3) recognises that penalty rates often compensate workers for time they may otherwise spend with family; and

(4) opposes measures that would remove or undermine penalty rates, 10:41:19 AM—
