Wages Theft

Paradigm Shift

This week we talk wage theft in Queensland, past and present.

We discuss the Qld government inquiry into wage theft released today with Marianna O’Gorman from the McKell Institue.

We also speak with lawyer Jonathan Kawa about a class action lawsuit to recover decades worth of wages that were never paid to aboriginal workers.
