Cutting penalty rates – a summary in all their richness

The Productivity Commission: Men on $400,000 a year telling women on $40,000 that penalty rates are bad.

Liberal and National Party politicians on from $200,000 to $550,000 supporting the Productivity Commission.

Men or women earning more than $400 billion from Australia, and paying no tax, supporting and pushing for these cuts in pay to women and men on $40,000.

Here is one small example of the rogue’s gallery (some of whom do or may pay just a little bit of tax).

 
As the Victorian Trades Hall Council says:

There’s a good reason why you won’t read too much about corporate tax minimisation in the mainstream media over the next few months.

“The Productivity Commission: Men on $400,000 a year telling women on $40,000 that penalty rates are bad.”

You claim that it is men telling women. It could just as easily be women telling men.

You seem to be obsessed with identity politics.

Did you actually read all 3 sentences? Oh look, some low paid workers are men. So fucking what? Identity politics? Seriously? I am posting a rebuttal of the ruling class and you sidetrack it with nonsense.
