This is very bad as we small businesses cannot afford to pay this increased rate. It is hard to get staff at this stage where big businesses are already paying at higher rates and will not affect them much. I am definitely going to cut down staff numbers from next week onwards and might even close down. Not all boom experience to every sector of the businesses in WA!!!
