Our Executive Director Zana Bytheway noted that reports of underpayment in the workplace were on the rise, with our Telephone Information Service receiving 2246 underpayment-related calls last year, with 255 of those from workers under the age of 24. Another 55 were from students or those on bridging or refugee visas. She noted though, that the true number of affected workers is likely much higher.
