This show weekend, many in our community will be enjoying the Geelong Show with family and friends. But some will miss out on quality time with loved ones – they’ll still be serving coffee and working at our local pubs.
Malcolm Turnbull and the Liberals have slashed penalty rates for these weekend workers.
Victorian Liberal Leader Matthew Guy supports these cuts and cuts on Geelong Cup Day, and plans to cut wages even further on Grand Final Eve and Easter Sunday.
We can get rid of this pay cut, by getting rid of the Turnbull Government.
Westfield is a multinational company that makes billions of dollars in profit a year, forcing staff and loyal customers pay for parking is just greedy.
Retail and hospitality workers at Westfield Southland work long and late shifts, in low income roles. It is unsafe to force them to park offsite and unfair to force them to pay commercial rates of parking, as high as $1300 a year.
This is a cost that workers cannot afford and do not deserve. So this Sunday we'll be out chatting to locals and getting them to sign a petition to get Westfield to change its mind.

Dozens of volunteers will be calling people from all around Australia to let them know how to make a vote for equality. Imagine a room buzzing with conversations, a tally board tracking our calls as we get closer and closer to our goal. We have food, drinks and some prizes.
We have a big year coming up net year so we think its high time to bring together some new and experienced activists, to have a drink and chat about whats happening over the next year.
Friends, family and partners are welcome - just make sure to RSVP accordingly so we can account for numbers!
