The plan to give young people a pay rise

View descriptionShare

The peak body for unions in Australia has launched a nationwide campaign to scrap junior wages and give 18-20 year olds the same minimum wage as everyone else. In case you didn’t know, Australia’s laws legally allow young workers - meaning those under 21 - to be paid less than their older co-workers, even if they are performing the same job. Unions are wanting to change that, so can it be done? We’ll explore the answer in today’s podcast.
