Thousands of workers filled the streets across the country in October calling on the Federal Government to change the rules so working people have pay rises that keep up with the cost of living.
Wage growth is at near record lows, with four out of five working people not getting pay rises that keep up with the cost of living.
The current Australian minimum wage is not a living wage, and is no longer keeping people out of poverty.
Forty percent of working people are in insecure work – either in casual work, dependent on contracting, in labour hire, getting too few hours, or in the gig economy.
We need to change the rules so working people get a fair go, fair pay rises, and jobs they can count on.
We have two more rallies in Brisbane and Canberra on 20 November so make sure you RSVP if you live in those cities.
