Small business is the biggest employer in Australia. We proudly stand here on this side and say, 'Big business and big unions doing deals to cut penalty rates is wrong.' We will stand here every day of the week and go into bat for small business. We want to see small business prosper and grow. We want to see small business on a level playing field with big business. What we don't want to see is big businesses and big unions, time and time again, being able to do dirty little deals that take penalty rates away from workers—something which continues to be condoned by those on the other side.
