Star City Casino Workers Demand Pay Raise
As reported by the Australian: "Hundred of Star City Casino workers gathered on the steps of Sydney's premier gambling venue today to call for better pay. "Blowing whistles and yelling 'decent wages, listen up', the workers called on the casino's management to offer an increased pay deal to offset rising petrol prices, interest rates and inflation. "Workers staged the protests to coincide with their shifts, with more than 100 turning up at each of the two morning rallies today. "The casino, in inner-city Pyrmont, is currently negotiating an enterprise bargaining agreement with its 3000 employees. "Today it upped its offer by half a per cent to an 11 per cent wage increase over three years."
