Submission To The Senate Standing Committee On Community Affairs Inquiry Into The Business Services Wage Assessment Tool Payment Scheme Bill

July 2014

In this submission, PWDA explains  three key reasons why the Bill should not proceed.  Until the Commonwealth commits to ending wage assessment using the BSWAT, people with disability will continue to be assessed by it, and will continue to experience wage injustice. This will include people who take a payment under the scheme; yet in doing so they will have given up their right to complain about a discriminatory system that the Commonwealth has no plans to end.
