Fair piece rates for farm workers

October 20, 2020 2:43 pm

Farm workers, backpackers, seasonal workers and other migrant workers tell us they are commonly paid well below the minimum wage, due to unfair piece rates set by farmers and their labour hire companies

Many piece rate workers don’t have a real say in the way piece rates are set and are forced to do unpaid work, overfill buckets and not paid for the additional fruit picked.

Farm workers deserve a fair piece rate system that guarantees them a minimum hourly base rate. This system already applies across a number of industries and works well while making it much harder for dodgy employers to exploit vulnerable workers.

Get on board with our fair piece rates for farm workers campaign – sign our petition to change the laws to make sure that farm workers receive a guaranteed minimum hourly rate regardless of what you pick.
