The Great Wage Rip-Off

May 04, 2017 6pm - 8pm

The Great Wage Rip-Off

When everyone from 7-Eleven to Swimland to George Calombaris (of Masterchef fame) have been caught ripping off - sorry, "underpaying" - their workers, things can feel a little hopeless, right?

Jess Walsh is United Voice's Victorian secretary. She represents some of our lowest paid workers in the fight for a better future. 

Jasmin Ashton is a former cafe worker who took on a boss who was underpaying them and their coworkers - and won!

Joo-Cheong Tham is an Associate Professor at the University of Melbourne whose work focuses on the regulation of precarious work and temporary migrant work in Australia

Join Jess, Jasmin, and Joo-Cheong as we talk wage theft, "underpayment", and how we win at work.

RSVP by May 2 for catering purposes.
