E-Petition: Stop the Backpacker Tax!

3 February 2016

We're running a new campaign to stop the Backpacker Tax in its tracks.

The Government has proposed a tax of 32.5% on backpacker wages - expected to cost workers $0.5 billion in coming years.

Working holiday makers provide a valuable service to our industry, and are an important part of the fabric of many rural communities.

Without the labour provided by backpackers, agriculture would face acute shortages and tourism would suffer.

Please help us argue against this change by signing our petition.
