Go Home On Time Today!

featuring Ebony Bennett, Eliza Littleton and Lily Raynes

New research shows Australian workers are on average working 6 weeks unpaid overtime per year, costing over $92 billion dollars in unpaid wages across the economy.

2022 marks the fourteenth annual Go Home on Time Day (GHOTD), an initiative of the Centre for Future Work at the Australia Institute that shines a spotlight on overwork among Australians, including excessive overtime that is often unpaid.

This was recorded on Tuesday 22nd November 2022 and things may have changed since recording.
