#PayTheWorkers Gerry Harvey – Friday Actions 28 May 2021

Billionaire retailer, Gerry Harvey’s company, Harvey Norman, has made millions in extra profit during the pandemic, including pocketing millions in Job Keeper.

Right now, retail employers (including Harvey Norman) are publicly pushing to cut the wages of millions of workers that rely on the minimum wage in this year’s annual wage review.

Shockingly other employers have publicly argued for no pay increase at all.

The Federal Government’s economic recovery has abandoned the nation’s lowest paid workers, through their deliberate absence and lack of advocacy for these workers.

Australian Unions are campaigning for a 3.5% pay rise that will boost the pay packets of 1 in 4 workers, to spend at their local businesses, that will in turn create secure reliable jobs.

Gerry Harvey and the Federal Government should publicly support a pay rise for Australian workers.

Join with local workers and activists right around the country to highlight the need to raise the wage for 1 in 4 workers that rely on an increase on the minimum wage this year.

See one of the rally events listed below to attend, or head to your nearest Harvey Norman and print out a Selfie Sign and use the flyer to make your own selfie video/pic post on social media.
