After the heartless, fucked-up and disgusting war on retail and hospitality workers announced by Australia's Fucked Work Commission today, its good to know there's at least one company who've said they won't implement the reductions in penalty rates just mandated.
Congratulations, LUSH Australia. Please support them - like their page and comment on their posts. Tell them they're awesome! Most importantly, buy their products - and don't forget to tell them why.
But there's more witches can do. Please advise us if you know other companies who've pledged to keep paying staff fairly. And please ask your local coffee shop and takeaway food store and supermarket and favourite clothing chain and shoe shop if they're going to reduce wages. If they are, TELL THEM YOU'RE NOT SHOPPING THERE. EVER. AGAIN. If not, tell them you'll spend more and bring your friends.
And please - send MFW a message about them. We promise to share their names here. We promise they'll earn more from paying their staff penalty rates than from cutting them, because we'll all patronise their businesses. So let us have it, witches. Let's discover the businesses saying #YESToSundayPenaltyRates and let's support them. You let us know, and we'll make and share the list.
Get to it, witches. And please share to spread the word. If our fuckstick government won't support youth and women and other retail and hospitality employees, witches will fucking-well support them ourselves.
Help us help them. Let's find the good guys, and spread the word. And - go.
5.5 hours sleep last night. A full days of work in the city today. Now 12am and the only place she will nap [note: not sleep - just have little naps] is on my chest. It's funny, isn't it? That we just keep going. Somehow. Mumma's... remember that no matter how long & hard the night is, the sun will always rise in the morning ☀️ #justkeepswimming
The happiest and most productive employees are those who feel safe, valued and listened to by their employers, which is why we will not be applying the Fair Work reductions to penalty rates. #penaltyrates
