The National Retail Association is meeting with Fair Work Australia this week to discuss cutting or reducing penalty rates - increased wages paid to workers who work late night and Sunday hours - claiming that the rates are not suited for modern day Australia. Retail workers currently earn double time for working Sundays and weekday hours past 6:00pm. (Photo by Robert Prezioso/Getty Images)
