It's about full pay for the work you do.

Workers deserve to be paid based on their contribution to their workplace, not the year they were born.

Junior rates in Australia mean that qualified, experienced 18+ year olds are getting paid only a percentage of the adult rate purely based on their age.

When you turn 18 you’re viewed as a responsible adult in the eye of the law – it just makes sense that you should have the same standing when you’re at work.

Young workers deserve to be paid properly for their contribution.
