Queensland workers not paid $1 billion in super

  Published: 10 Jan 2022

More than a quarter of Queensland’s workers have been ripped off on super contributions they earned, and the state’s super rip-off will continue unless federal politicians act.

Industry Super Australia (ISA) analysis of tax data shows more than 570,000 Queensland workers were not paid $940 million in super losing an average of $1,600 in 2018/19. Those dudded can end up retiring with up to $60,000 less.

In six years, Queensland’s cumulative unpaid super debt has climbed to an eyewatering $5.5 billion. Young Queensland workers and those on lower incomes are most likely to be underpaid, and underpayments are sadly widespread in blue collar jobs and hospitality.
