Thousands of workers have been protesting across Australia this week as the government receives more backlash against its workplace relations review.

    With many people employed to work 5 over 7 the suggestion that payment for a penalty to work a 6th shift/day is worthy of consideration. At some point it time there will be general realisation, if not acceptance, that the creation of jobs has "stalled" and the strictures around employing people need to be addressed. Its similar to the fact we all consume too much sugar in that we need to start the conversation somewhere.

    So does this mean that a person who chooses to work in a seven day industry knowing can subsequently state that their hours of work are unsociable so they must get extra pay. And the parent who can not work during the week but, can work on weekends and public holidays, because their partner can mind the children, be paid extra over the employee who is available over seven days. Give me a break.
