    Calls for pay increases at the department store, Farmers

    Calls for pay increases at the department store, Farmers


    Over the next two weeks staff across the country will take part in various forms of partial strike action, over the company's refusal to pay the living wage.

    First Union says 80-percent of Farmers workers are on less than the living wage, which is 21-dollars-and-15-cents.

    The Union's retail, finance and commerce divisional secretary, Tali Williams, says workers won't back down.

    She says they've told Farmers this action will continue, until she sees some meaningful change.
