It’s time to make the message louder – Australia needs a pay rise.
The system is out of balance. Pay rises are not keeping up with the cost of living. We need to change the rules so working people have the bargaining power to win their fair share.
Powerful companies have helped themselves to our fair share for too long. They have enjoyed tax breaks, while working Australians have suffered funding cuts to health and education, the privatisation of essential services, and the driving down of wages and entitlements.

Every Australian deserves a decent, living wage, no matter what job we do or the colour of our skins. But today, big corporations and certain politicians force down our wages, cut funding to our schools and hospitals, and let our infrastructure fall behind; all while helping themselves to tax breaks and perks. Then they blame poor families and new immigrants for our problems!
Working people are fighting back. We’re uniting together as Australians from every background to win a fairer share for working people – just like we won Medicare, safer workplaces, and marriage equality.
Together, we are strong.
Together, we’ll change the rules.
