Shop Trading Hours

The Dom Post reports that we may get some more sanity to our shop trading laws and allow shopping on Easter Sunday. About time too.

I have never been able to work out that if you have:

a) Employees wanting to work and earn more money
b) Employers wanting to open
c) Customers wanting to shop

how we justify the state telling them all that it is illegal to do so.

I do agree with the CTU that it is sensible and desirable that employees be given the option to refuse to work, but as long as one has that provision I would allow trading 365 days a year if enough employees, employers and customers decide it is viable.
