Newsagents fight minimum hours law…

This article starts off with the comment

NEWSAGENTS claim the scrapping of individual contracts and new rules requiring them to employ delivery staff for three hours a day is a "hammer blow" to their businesses.

It then goes on to say

It also has the potential to toss out of work retired and semi-retired folk who like to work a couple of hours a day.

It is not a potential, I know many newsagents now, who have already tossed out retired, semi-retired, students etc. Many have as a result changed their shop hours.

Baring a change in government, going from federal Workplace Relations Minister Julia Gillard comment I doubt the government will move.
