Employers face jail for paying wrong wages
While the Andrews government blocks tougher laws for criminals who bash paramedics, it wants to jail employers if they pay the wrong wages to their employees.
Mr Andrews also want the law to include jail for employers who don’t keep the correct records about their employees.
Employers who deliberately cheat their employees deserve to be punished, but it’s not fair to send innocent employers to jail if they make an honest mistake.
This shouldn’t happen in a free and open country such as Australia.
