Don't short-change workers this Australia Day!

Daniel the teacher doesn't have to work on Australia Day, but he's behind you if you do.

But for hundreds of thousands of Australians, Australia Day, Easter, Labour Day, ANZAC Day, Cup Day, Christmas and New Years Day are all under threat.

Big business lobby groups are trying to get rid of public holiday rates, or "penalty rates". They've been given the opening they need through Tony Abbott's Productivity Commission. 

We need to stand up for public holiday rates!

It's only fair that the people who have to work on public holidays are compensated for the loss of a special day. Sign this petition to stand with the Aussie workers fighting for their holidays!

Will you sign?
