Protect the minimum wage!

Family First Senator Bob Day thinks it's unfair that employers are required to pay young workers a minimum wage. 

He says young people should be able to bargain with employers to work for less than the minimum wage and to waive conditions such as sick pay, holiday pay or unfair dismissal protections.

Sounds like it's back to the salt mines for Aussie kids...

Family First Senator Bob Day has signalled that he'll back the Federal Coalition's Newstart changes if they adopt his proposal to abolish the minimum wage for young workers. 

The problem with being young and unemployed is that you don't have enough money to live on. Reducing the minimum wage is not a helpful solution to this problem. 

Sign our petition to support the minimum wage and fight the government's attacks on your working rights!
