Submission: wage theft

Unlawful underpayment of employees' remuneration


The Australian Manufacturing Workers’ Union (AMWU) represents over 70,000 workers who create, make and maintain in every city and region across Australia. Many of the workers that we represent have experienced wage theft. Further, the wages and conditions of AMWU members who work for businesses that do properly pay their workers are under threat from the widespread wage theft which puts unfair pressure on their employers to cut employee costs.

The Australian Manufacturing Workers’ Union welcomes the opportunity to provide a submission on this important issue. For your information, we have also attached the submission of the AMWU Western Australian Branch to an inquiry undertaken by the WA State Government into wage theft as we believe it will assist the committee in its deliberations.
