Wanna go shopping? Better call in sick so you can go. Entertainment venues? Yep, gotta cancel your shift at work to go to that concert/bar. Wanna watch that big sportsball game? Hope your boss lets you watch it at work or gives you the day off.
That's only fair, right?
Or how about all those "real" jobs that I've seen so many people harp on about lately change their hours so that they're working Saturdya and Sunday. Bet they'd be up in arms about that.
The difference in your example of when you were young, is that you wanted to work more, and would have done so regardless of rate of pay. You would have been gaining something. Now imagine if you had that Sunday shift from the start, and they suddenly took away a decent portion of the money you had been making from it. You'd be fucking pissed.
Working weekends is busier and you miss out on a lot of things in order to work them. Sport? Nah man, you can't play sport, you have to work. Hang out with your buddies? Nah dude, you have a shift. Special events? Birthdays? Nope, fuck that, you have to go deal with some asshole who doesn't appreciate the fact that you're working a time that they wouldn't so that they can receive a service.
You can't shit all over an industry, while still demanding a service from them.
Meanwhile, over at the ATO....
ATO admits working hours inefficient after staff backlash over request to work nine more minutes
Some interesting edits here.
Interesting how this independant body was formed by the Rudd Government, but it's all the liberals fault.

I see lots of people spouting "we live in a 24/7 society now" well when I can access all services my tax dollars pay for 24/7/365 then I will concede this point. until then, anyone who works socially and family unfriendly hours deserves every cent of the extra money they get and more.
Where does this myth come from that "nobody wants to work" on weekends? They sure a shit look just as happy about working weekends as they do working weekdays.
Poor you "sacrificing weekend time".
It really does suck that now-a-days people "sacrifice" leisure time in order to get a fucking job.
*I say "fuck off" as a term of endearment
You make it seem as if I'm bitching that I have to work weekends ? Or is this another one of those instances where you lump everyone into the 'millennial' basket and have a go because you're thirty something and think you know better ?
I value being able to visit businesses on the weekend, and I value employees that work the days nobody else wants to work. Maybe if you thought a bit less about yourself and more about others, you would feel the same ?
next thing you'll be moaning that you should get paid to study
harden up princess, or the world will all be rather unpleasant for your working life
my schedule this week was 6am starts each morning, i finished at 11pm, midnight, 7pm, 3am last night, and have just finished work but will do a few more hours later tonight, and probably 5 hours each night on the weekend. that's after spending much moneys on postgrad studies.
still, at least my taxes will have paid for about a dozen smelly hippy arts students to smoke weed for a year.
btw, you're a shit troll. you should stop. you shouldn't be enraged by every issue, it is deleterious to your objective do so. the trick to trolling is also to post an inflammatory argument or position in a thread where others will feel strongly about, then stop posting.

If the hours worked are standard operating hours, and your not being taken advantage of then I don't see any reason for penalties. If however your normal hours are Mon-Fri and you are required to work weekends, or offered the opportunity, then I wholeheartedly support penalties. These are the people who are genuinely sacrificing personal time, and deserve the reward for doing so.
I'm not trolling dude. When decisions made by politicians in Canberra impact my life or the lives of people I care about, why shouldn't I be annoyed ?
