Doug Ewart from Pearl Beach, NSW has started this petition on behalf of all the workers in NSW. This petition (started 18 Nov 2014) is important because people are facing financial & emotional hardship due to the changes to the workers compensation scheme (WorkCover NSW)
Repeal the legislation changes made to the Workers Compensation Scheme in 2012
With this petition Doug wants to let the government know that the injured workers of NSW, deserve to be able to support their families, pay their mortgages & live to a standard that they had whilst they were working.
Because of the changes, as an injured worker, the benefit that you will receive will not cover your everyday living costs. Due to these changes people are left financially and emotionally ruined, leading to people losing their homes, using their superannuation under hardship, leaving them with nothing for their retirement & the breakdown of the family unit.
All this pressure may then bring on mental health problems such as severe depression which then sometimes leads to the injured worker attempting suicide.
This does not only affect the injured worker, it affects all the people the injured worker associates with.
If you are unfortunate enough to be injured at work these changes will affect you as well. Your signature on this petition will show the government that the injured worker deserves to be supported by the system & that you may change your vote at the next election if they are not prepared to listen.Sign the petition right now!
