No issue with workers getting a better deal, but with the retail sector already struggling and with more either going to the wall or looking decidedly dodgy each week, the timing's questionable. With the number of stores going into administration recently - Angus and Robertson, Borders, Colorado, Ed Harry (some stores saved because of a management buy-out but still in a precarious state), Sleep City, Fletcher Jones etc - and plenty more on the way (Woolworths stating it will close 100 Dick Smith stores, and Specialty Fashion saying it will close 120 Millers, Katies and La Senza stores) I'd have thought it sensible not to burden businesses more at the moment.
