Stopping the bus...

Victorian Labor Premier Daniel Andrews has declared Easter Sunday and the Friday preceeding the AFL Grand Final as official Public Holidays, with the side-effect imposing the top penalty wage rates for workers covered by an award on those days.

There are reports the Easter Sunday workers program has had a negative effect, especially in the hospitality and tourism trade, of businesses staying shut because of the costs that would be incurred. Grand Final Friday is still to come.
