Fairly Compensate Indigenous Australians For Their Withheld Earnings!

Fairly Compensate Indigenous Australians For Their Withheld Earnings!

For the past century, the Australian government unfairly withheld up to 75% of Aboriginal workers' pay earnings. Now, some Australian states have started putting in place plans to pay back the money that was taken--but in amounts that hardly make amends.

Most recently, Western Australia agreed to offer only up to $2000 per person, with the strict requirement that the workers prove that their wages were withheld.

Many of the Aboriginal workers never kept records, and the $2000 maximum pay-back is nowhere close to what Aboriginal workers have had taken by the government.

In comparison, New South Wales offered up to $11,000 to each person whose wages were taken from them.

Tell Western Australia's Barnett Administration that its current pay-back deal is still marked by injustice and he must move to compensate the workers more fairly.
