Questions without Notice
My question is again to the Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations. Minister, how many of the approximately 200 temps who are not employed by the Workplace Authority but who are applying the misnamed ‘fairness test’ are temporary residents of Australia with no background in industrial relations let alone in Australian industrial relations? Minister, what would a foreign backpacker know about an Aussie fair go or fair compensation?
