Say No to a Christmas Eve Public Holiday
The Palaszczuk Government is talking about introducing a new half-day public holiday on Christmas Eve. We need to stop this bad policy before it becomes law!
This extra public holiday is a terrible idea because:
- It's yet another penalty on businesses who employ Queenslanders.
- Many smaller businesses will have to shut on Christmas Eve which will not only hurt them, but their employees and customers too.
- Workers are already entitled to apply for leave over Christmas Eve. Making it a public holiday will only hurt employees who rely on a Christmas Eve shift.
- The Government's own figures show it will cost businesses up to $137M every year!
