Support Weekend Rates - Say No To Di Bella Coffee

I wish to add my voice to others concerned by the attitude of multi-millionaire Phillip Di Bella, owner of Di Bella Coffee, toward weekend rates.

Weekend rates are a vital source of income for 1.5 million Australians, many of them low-income earners. Phillip Di Bella's attacks on weekend rates are unfair and unjustified - particularly given many of the Australians serving up his products every day rely on weekend rates to make ends meet.

Weekend rates are designed to compensate workers for the hours they spend away from their families and friends on weekends and public holidays – and the important moments they miss out on.
Weekend rates need to stay. I will vote with my feet and avoid Di Bella products until Phillip Di Bella stops his attack on this vital part of our Australian way of life.

    The rich always want to get richer off the backs of the poorer workers. Leave the week end rates alone, in the end if no one works the weekend where will you get your coffee.

    This is backward thinking. I also support significantly raising the minimum wage. The Have’s have too much; the HaveNots have too little.

    I currently work weekends and I would be devastated if my weekend rate of pay was abolished.

    I'm saying no to Di Bella Coffee - because weekend rates keep the weekend special.
