The Greens leader Richard Di Natale has been caught out with a bad case of hypocrisy. While he pushes for legislation to lock in weekend penalty rates he is found to be paying a live-in nanny just $6 an hour.
I don’t have a problem with Di Natale coming to a mutually beneficial working arrangement with the live-in nanny, but I do have a problem of him and others stopping Australian workers being able to do the same thing.
Each of us should have the freedom when looking for work to come to a mutually beneficial working arrangement with a potential employer. The individual should be free to take on work even if the conditions and pay rates fall outside the dictates of ‘Fair Work’.
Family First believes we need to free up the workplace, not make it more restrictive. We are driving away job opportunities and hurting small family businesses and local communities.
