In 2015 the Productivity Commission recommended changes to the workplace laws which included removing the requirement that workers in the cafe, hospitality, entertainment, restaurant and retailing industries receive double pay for working on Sundays. The commission argued that the laws were created in a different era when less people shopped and went to church. Opponents, including Unions, argue that the rule change would result in a pay cut for thousands of minimum wage workers who work in cafes, shops and restaurants.  See recent Sunday Double Wages news
