Small business employer push for single loaded rate not suitable for Newsagents

There is a growing push among some small business employer groups to create a single loaded rate for employees, particularly casuals. Whilst simplification of Awards and the ease of paying employees the correct entitlements is a worthy pursuit, a rush to create a loaded rate which takes into account all award penalties and setting a single hourly rate is a simplistic approach which will not lead to better outcomes for Newsagents.
