Submission | References Committee Inquiry on Penalty Rates
The Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Australian Chamber) welcomes the opportunity this inquiry provides to focus on:
a. job opportunities, particularly for our young people and first time job seekers;
b. the changing expectations of consumers and desire for businesses to provide services to local communities that meet those expectations; and
c. the challenges for operators of smaller businesses to sustainably do business in the retail and hospitality industries in highly competitive markets.
