I never thought I would see the day when I agreed with Senator Eric Abetz.  Penalty rates need to be reviewed, especially as many people regard weekends and public holidays as just another weekday.  But for existing employees who are managing a mortgage and family budget based on the fact that they are legally entitled to an agreed penalty rate, reducing their pay would be immoral.  By all means lower or reduce penalty rates where common sense prevails, set a date from when it will take effect, and new employees after that date should be subject to the new entitlements.
