Not content with ripping take home pay from low paid workers in 2017, the employer groups are at it again, this time questioning penalty rates altogether.
I fully support penalty rates, and will continue the fight to defend them in our community and workplaces.
"Going out and targeting low-wage workers is wrong – it's something that [the workers] don't need and don't deserve."

It's been great to have the support of my Dad (Michael) out on the campaign trail.
Growing up as one of nine kids, Dad and Mum taught us the values of hard work, a fair go for all and love for family.
Dad loves running a Midson street stall, so make sure if you see him over the next few weeks you come and say hello.
I met with Tanya Plibersek, federal Deputy Labor Leader, as she discussed real concerns about the Liberals potential cuts to Tasmania's GST revenue.
Tassie could lose millions out of our state budget, affecting local jobs and services right across the community. Labor will fight hard against Liberal cuts in Tasmania.
Labor will always fight for a fair go for Tasmania. Cuts to our GST funding would be devastating for jobs and services in our state.
Labor will always be the Party of the worker. We are the Party for jobs and workers rights.
Stable, long term jobs in cities and regional Tasmania.
We are also the Party of Medicare, Superannuation, Public Education, the NDIS and the NBN....
The Liberal's have gutted our health system and run out of ideas for this state.
Labor will put people first.
From my family to yours, Merry Christmas!
Thinking of all those who have to work today and who are missing loved ones. Spend time with family and friends and stay safe this Christmas.
The Hodgman Liberal Government has run our health system into the ground. $200 million worth of cuts and a Minister who takes no responsibility to fix his own mess means our system is under great strain.
I'm proud to be a part of Rebecca Whites Labor team that will put people first and remove poker machines from pubs and clubs.
Maxine has a very personal story about why access to healthcare is so important. When people can't access healthcare it hurts families.
The community just can't understand why this Hodgman Liberal Government has cut $210 million from our health system.
