Senator BARBARA POCOCK (South Australia) (11:42): We've heard a lot this morning and last night about fines, business, industrial action and how the sky is going to fall if this bill is passed. There are millions of workers out there whom we haven't heard anything about—the millions of women, for example, who are hoping for a pay rise, a narrowing of gender equity, an improvement in their circumstances and some flexibility, so they know what their rosters are tomorrow. Could you fill us in on how this bill will assist that group of workers, people for whom this bill holds great potential to improve their lives? I'm particularly interested in gender and women.
