Almost 10,000 retail workers oppose NSW law

Almost 10,000 retail workers in NSW, Australia, have signed a petition calling for the dumping of proposed laws allowing all shops to open on Boxing Day.

NSW Opposition Leader John Robertson, who accepted the petition on Monday, described the move as an insult to retail workers.

All retailers in NSW will be allowed to open on Boxing Day under new trading laws to be introduced into parliament.
