yuyutsu please
Yes when penalty rates first came about many many more followers of God, any one of them existed
IF penalty rates are for Church goers not being able to why not Friday for Islam
What is the Jewish day of worship
At my birth 44 hour weeks was the norm, four hours on Saturday for many
A union now part of the CFMMEU marched for 40 hour week, 8 hours work 8 for sleep/rest and eight just for living
Any thought, or effort to force others to think it is about faith is constructed

Belly,

Christmas Day celebrates the birth of Christ, why would an atheist want extra pay for working on that day?

Seems like bludging on religion to me?

Did you give your penalty rates to charity?

Freedom of religion should also be about freedom from having to recognize religious practices of a religion to which one does not belong.

ise mise we live in different worlds, you just maybe live in one that does not exist
All around me, Churches in country villages, ones built on donated land, built by free labour
Are looking bright and like new
They now house restaurants, takeaways, even the products of winerys
Not your saint like invisible Church goers
Even once proud and strong Catholic Monasteries, three within reach, struggle to remain open
Fact is I am far from alone in my view the weekend has evolved to be nothing to do with Christianity
Mate your insistence black is in fact while, should warn you
Christianity is damaged by such as you, not helped
Now a truth you by inserting your anti worker stuff here show little respect or interest in, the very real need for a bill that while protecting does no harm to every faith

I can not get my head around ise mise, in truth his insistence weekends are the property of his faith, is weird
And not unlike some of the things that make most of us shuder from radical Islam
Sure the point of this thread [can it be I got it wrong] is not his bigoted view of wage earners rights?
Maybe I should call for a bill to protect non believers from bigoted believers?

Belly,

Just tell me why an atheist/Christian/Buddist/Islamic/Hindu/
whatever shop keeper/businessman should have to pay extra to his Christian staff (and all the unbelievers as well) who work on one of their Holy Days?

Freedom from religious discrimination is what we should also be looking at in Freedom of Religion.

Individual,

Christians shouldn't get any special rates for working on their Holy Days.

We need a level playing field.
