Josh Cullinan, from the new Retail and Fast Food Workers Union, and who helped expose the wages scandal, said the proposed bill was a "watershed" and it was now up to politicians to decide where they stood.

"Every day that politicians equivocate on this important legislation our members are losing $1 million a day," he said. "It's gotta stop."

Major employers including McDonald's, Coles and Woolworths all pay significant numbers of workers less than the award through reduced, or in the case of McDonald's no, weekend penalties.
