Please go back onto the Dept. of Labour website and get hold of the wage determintation for the retail industry. That will have all the answers for you.

Check at your local UIFoffice. They have all the facts. A lot of employers r using the economy as an excuse not to give increases. Your dad must just make sure he' s getting what is ritefully his + that he' s not being short changed. Many of the bosses are still living the high lifestyle while their staff are short changed. " Adverse economic + financial conditions"  are often used as excuses.
