Abstract

Penalty rates were introduced in response to the establishment of the weekend, which evolved from the Sabbath – a day devoted to God and not to work. Over time, Western culture adopted Sunday as their day of worship and rest. Saturday, in time, formed part of the two day weekend in response to harsh and oppressive working conditions in the United Kingdom during industrialisation.
