“Wages have stagnated while corporate profits have grown, in fact the billionaires have made a killing out of the pandemic. It’s time to stop the rot. Our policies include an immediate increase in the minimum wage to $25 per hour and the restoration of penalty rates.
“We’re also campaigning for a 30 hour week with no loss in pay. Let’s share the work around and give everyone more time to enjoy life. It’s time workers actually got the benefit of new technology instead of bosses grabbing it all for themselves as increased profits.”
