Get Up has launched this petition to ensure that cross-benchers in the federal senate will vote down the BSWAT bill that would ‘force [Disabled] workers to make a terrible choice: accept only half the backpay they’re legally owed, or we’ll take you back to court’.
ASAN AUNZ strongly believes that Disabled workers should always earn a fair wage. We understand that some Disabled people may need to be on a disability pension, even while working, to cover extra costs incurred from living with a disability. These costs include, but are not limited to costs for therapy, surgery or other additional healthcare needs, equipment, transport; these are expenses that non-disabled workers do not have, that must be taken into account for disabled workers.
