Episode 66 - Wage Theft with Felicity Sowerbutts
Caspar speaks with 29 year old Young Workers Centre Director Felicity Sowerbutts about the successful campaign to make Wage Theft a crime. After growing up in the UK and moving to Australia as a young politics graduate, Felicity worked retail jobs, internships and slugged away until finding herself working with the Victorian Trades Hall Council just as they created a dedicated legal service and hotline for youth workers - The Young Workers Centre. After initial surveys found rampant underpayments and seeing that there was no proper punishment for willfully underpaying or denying minimum entitlements to workers, the Young Workers Centre renamed underpayment "Wage Theft" and successfully campaigned for it to become a crime in the state of Victoria. Aside from discussing this remarkable campaign, Caspar and Felicity discussed the plight of young workers in the covid-era, the ways young workers can address issues in their workplace and the importance in empowering people to transform their lives.
