We are one of the few countries in the world which has junior rates for those under 21 years of age. Many of our workplaces rely almost entirely on young workers earning up to 250% less than the adult wage. For example, more than 70% of McDonald’s workers are under 21. Young workers aren’t expected to do 250% less work so why do we get paid less. It’s time we caught up with the rest of the world and abolished junior rates.
