Meredith Hammat Secretary UnionsWA on a wage rise for WA’s lowest-paid workers

The Western Australian Industrial Relations Commission last week began hearings for the State Wage Case which will set the wages for some of the lowest paid working people in WA, those on the WA Minimum Wage and state awards. Around 100,000 people rely on this decision to determine their wages.

Again, this year the peak employer body, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry WA, have recommended that the lowest-paid working people get no increase at all.

Indymedia’s Karun Cowper spoke to Meredith Hammat, Secretary, UnionsWA to get her response to the hearings.
