Re: Deregulation of Shop Trading Hours

^^ That makes sense you don't get paid Public Holiday Penalties if you don't go to work. Just regular leave pay. <..snip..> **Except Rundle Mall and Grote street stores. I never said people should get penalty rates, they should just get a regular steady pay week to week. Just like the other states ...

Re: Deregulation of Shop Trading Hours

That's not true Coles and Woolies have National EBAs. Relevant staff would of been renumerated well, according to what has been negotiated with unions and the companies in accordance to the EBA agreement. Coles SA staff were forced to take annual leave, time in lieu or unpaid leave if they were ros...

Re: Deregulation of Shop Trading Hours

Do you mean supermarket staff were paid ordinary time for Sunday, and Public Holiday overtime for Monday? Did that apply for all workers on Sunday and Monday or just supermarkets? Supermarket staff were not paid if they were rostered to work on the Sunday. Those SA employees simply lost that income...

Re: Deregulation of Shop Trading Hours

QLD just recently made Easter Sunday a Public Holiday a couple of years back in exchange for an open trading day for non excempt stores. Yep and what did Liberals give South Australians for losing their public holiday? Zero? Now South Australian workers have the worst public holiday trading terms i...

Re: Deregulation of Shop Trading Hours

Apparently I don't listen well. It is Sunday that SA stores are shut and staff need to take annual leave or unpaid leave etc. NSW, Vic, Queensland and ACT have Easter Sunday as a public holiday and pay employees as such. The main issue was the talk that opening Easter Monday now makes SA fall inline...

Re: Deregulation of Shop Trading Hours

Here's something to think about. I have been told Coles will not be opening many of their stores on Easter Monday. The workers must take that day off as annual leave or time in lieu. So these workers have a choice of losing pay for a public holiday and a day of their annual leave or they can choose ...

Re: Mad March 2019

[...] I think there is a seriously strong argument to make for Rundle Street becoming a one way street at this point to vastly increase the amount of outside space for eateries. From Frome Road to East Tce I say make it a one lane one way street and try and bring more year long liveliness to the ar...

I thought state Labor claimed the batteries wiped costs of nearly $50 million per year for frequency stability and grid restart services.

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

I believe the unpopular thing is the view that the road only benefits the car/truck users of the road. Tolls do not account for increased economic activity increasing tax collection, increases in available jobs, increases in land value and decreases in traffic on similar alternative routes. Tolls ar...

Really? So you want a cut of the tax from the economic benefits of sealing the Strzelecki Track, duplicating Joy Baluch and Swanport Bridges, bypasses of the Adelaide Hills and Truro because they bring widespread economic benefit through improved freight efficiency and reduced time and cost, but yo...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

All future economic growth that leads to additional tax takes should also be excluded from being spent on those that didn't pay. Eg don't go using North-South Motorway growth money on regional roads or hospitals. If additional businesses join SA due to the more efficient road network make sure those...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

South Australians should also pay like it has for other sections. Tolls are not magic money trees. It just allows you to directly charge a user. But directly charging a user only makes sense if they are the only ones to benefit from a service. Why should people on the east of Adelaide avoid paying f...

Spoken like a true south Australian. So you are content for Adelaide to have a road system that has widely become regarded as a joke nationally, and is an impediment to the states economic growth? SA gets all kinds of jokes said about it. Fashion, culture, roads, etc. Driving on Adelaide roads is f...

We don't need tolls and these tunnels will not be tolled. It will be funded from existing taxes and levies that were put in place to fund these projects.

Decrease spending in other areas, increase taxes or don't build the road if there isn't enough money.
