Actually not all. Public holiday pay rates are so high that half the services of the Wayside Tavern are closed. Mostly only salaried staff are at work.
Any regular staff who are required are the best performers.
Marginal staff are rostered off.
The wage (yes, singular) for Australia is fixed centrally, by a one-size-fits-all commission. The Orwellian named "Fair Work" Commission.
Were it not for the ill-considered decisions of this commission of underachievers, everybody would have a full week's work. As it is, most staff will have a light pay week, missing one day of work (& thus one day of pay).
Message to the underachieving inferior intellects on the Fair Work Commission:
Who benefits from the current arrangement?
Staff who lose a day's pay?
Salaries who have to work harder?
Customers who discover the services they want are today priced into closure and not available?
