May 19th 2016
Greens leader Richard Di Natale has hit back at claims he failed to declare his family farm and has paid au pairs the minimum wage.
Fairfax has reported Senator Di Natale breached parliamentary rules by not declaring the farm in Victoria’s Otway Ranges.
He is also accused of paying three au pairs just $3.75 an hour to help with his family.
The claims come as Senator Di Natale has been spruiking the Green’s record on protecting workers’ rights.
In a statement, he said he declared the farm in two different ways from the moment he was elected.
He said the family’s au pairs were also all paid in accordance with the law and above minimum wage.
