The plan to give young people a pay rise

The plan to give young people a pay rise

In case you didn’t know, Australia’s laws legally allow young workers - meaning those under 21 - to be paid less than their older co-workers, even if they are performing the same job. Unions are wanting to change that, so can it be done? We’ll explore the answer in today’s podcast.

How the Buy Now, Pay Later changes affect you

How the Buy Now, Pay Later changes affect you

Over 7 million Australians use Buy Now Pay Later accounts, like Afterpay or Zip, and young people are the main adopters of this new form of credit. 

But now the government is keen to apply the same rules that govern our credit cards or loans to these services - in one of the biggest changes to The Credit Act in years.
