Wage Justice Campaign
  Friday 15 August 2014
 
Dear ,
 
Do you believe in fair wages for a fair days work? 
 
People with Disability Australia, in partnership with national peak disability and advocacy organisations, invite you to endorse our Joint Statement to Senators to VOTE NO and reject the Business Services Wage Assessment Tool (BSWAT) Payment Scheme Bill 2014. 
 
The Federal and High Courts of Australia have determined that the BSWAT discriminates against people with intellectual disability.  However, this Bill will not provide compensation or an effective remedy for people affected by the unlawful discrimination of the BSWAT.
 
We need your help to protect and promote the rights of people with intellectual disability:

We expect the Bill to be voted on before the end of August so take action now!
 
Thank you for your support,
 
People with Disability Australia
