In the survey I ran over the weekend, 75% of newsagents responding indicated that they cut paid rostered hours on Sunday given the higher than usual labour cost for the day. This is an example of penalty rates working against employees. I expect that many casual newsagent employees would have been happy with Sunday rates on Sunday. 120 newsagents responded to the survey.
