A historic pay deal for thousands of low-income workers has been signed after a landmark ruling on equal pay earlier this year. The deal will affect about 55,000 mainly women staff in government-funded sectors involving aged care, home support and disability services with some people seeing a pay rise from $16 to $23 an hour.
Jan Logie from the Green Party commented “Women have been consciously underpaid and have been fighting for more pay for fare too long. Today’s announcement is long overdue.”
