The Tasmania Needs a Pay Rise report shows a shocking gap between Tasmania and the rest of the country: Tasmanian workers are earning around $10,000 less per year than the Australian average.
Union Tasmania and ACTUs report Tasmania Needs A Pay Rise highlights the severity of the wage crisis in the state, and calls upon decision-makers to push through the vital Secure Jobs Better Pay Bill with urgency.
The report also finds that large employers in Tasmania can exploit weak employment laws, paying their workers significantly less than workers in parent companies based on the mainland.
