My question is to the Minister for Industrial Relations. When asked whether gig workers should be paid at least the minimum wage, the Minister for Industrial Relations said, 'It's complicated'. Luigi from Sydney worked as a full-time food delivery rider for Deliveroo for five years, earning well below the minimum wage. He had to cover all his own costs and expenses. What is complicated about making sure that workers like Luigi earn no less than the minimum wage when they're working in Australia?
