Weekends still mean something in Australia.

Time with family and friends, relaxing, catching a match. But for many Australians, weekends mean work.

Weekend penalty rates are an acknowledgement that working unsociable hours comes at a cost. Weekend rates are also a vital part of peoples’ pay that help to pay the bills and keep food on the table for millions of Australian families.

With the Federal Liberal Government and the business lobby calling for freezes and cuts to penalty rates, this is an attack on wages that working people can't afford and don't deserve.
