Parliamentary News – October 2010

A piece of positive news for workers from the last sitting week was the announcement that under the Holidays Amendment Bill 2010 people who work on Christmas Day this year and New Year’s Day 2011 will be entitled to receive penalty rates.  The government has made this decision after workers outlined to the government how the existing arrangements disadvantage many people.  The Carers (Recognition) Amendment Bill was also debated and I had the chance to acknowledge and applaud a sector of our community who freely invest their time, money and effort into the development and care of their loved ones.
