    Slower workers may earn less: ACTU - Daily Telegraph, Australia
    SLOWER workers may be paid less than the minimum wage under the federal government's planned industrial reforms, the ACTU says.

    The peak union body said the prospect of paying workers who operated at a slower pace a smaller wage was raised at a meeting last Thursday between unions, industry and Workplace Relations Minister Kevin Andrews.
