Sydney bartender outraged by lower penalty rates that don’t affect her

The Fair Work Commission ruled in February that Sunday penalty rates for retail, hospitality and fast food workers would be cut by July 1.

Sydney bartender, Mikaela Smith, who works only one Sunday shift a week, to ensure she remains getting maximum Centrelink payments, says she was outraged by the announcement.

“I was disgusted when I heard the government was again financially hurting young innocent people like me.

“I jumped on Facebook and let everyone know how much of a shitty Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is.”

The day after the announcement, Ms Smith was notified by a fellow coworker that the penalty rate change doesn’t affect her as a ‘casual’ employee.

She continues to bag the Prime Minister on social media.
