Apprentices ripped off

U to 10,000 apprentices in Queensland may have been underpaid since 2014 because the Fair Work Ombudsman published wage rates that were incorrect. The mistake could result in apprentices receiving wage increases of up to $A150 a week. It could also cost taxpayers up to $A30m, and the Queensland Government is refusing to contribute to its federal counterpart’s compensation package.
