The cost of living in the A.C.T. is going up.
This is why federal politicians who travel to Canberra have just received an increase in their travel allowance – and it is also why those who clean the People’s House are in desperate need of a pay increase.
We Clean the People’s House was established to assist those who clean your office, day in and day out, but are struggling on a wage that hasn’t risen in five years.
The failure to pay the Parliament House cleaners a fair wage disregards the fact that cleaners are people who are struggling to support their families and pay their rent.
So if you aren’t already a supporter of We Clean the People’s House, donate $20 per week, because Australia is a place where every working person should be able to earn a livable wage.
