See HCHA's submission to the Health Select Committee on the Care and Support (Pay Equity) Settlement Bill currently before the House

Whilst we support the uplift in wages for our staff, we submitted that two key areas of the Bill needed to be amended.  One was on funding and the other on training.   We advised the Committee that the Government is underfunding the implementation of pay equity whilst requiring legislation to compel employers to pay.  The outcome for our already underfunded sector is ruinous.
