WA cleaners fined $500,000

Former high-flying Western Australian businessman Mark Povey and his wife, Catherine Paino-Povey, have been fined more than $500,000 for short-changing three overseas workers thousands of dollars in wages through the couple’s contract cleaning company.

The pair, who were fined $340,000 in 2013 under similar circumstances with a different cleaning company, withheld $11,511 in wages from three Taiwanese workers from June 2012 until April 2013 via Commercial and Residential Cleaning Group.
