How It Works

The Workers Lottery was created to support the union movement's efforts to tackle the wage-theft crisis impacting young workers. Over half of all young workers have their wages stolen by their boss each year, and it's only getting worse. When you play the Workers Lottery, you're supporting our campaign to end wage-theft.

What it supports

The Workers Lottery is our very own lottery and a force for good, with proceeds going towards the Young Workers Centre, which campaigns against the wage-theft crisis.


Buy two tickets for just $10, 6 tickets for $30 or 18 tickets for $90. You can purchase as many tickets as you'd like. Tickets are available for sale up until 11:59 PM on 29 February 2020.

The draw & winning

The draw will occur on 2 March 2020. With only 4000 tickets for sale and 22 fantastic prizes, including a First Prize of $3700, there's never been so many chances to win.

50% supports young workers

A minimum of $0.50c from every dollar in ticket price goes directly to the Young Workers Centre to tackle wage-theft, exploitation and unsafe work.

22 cash prizes

Each lottery has 22 great prizes, and they're all cash prizes. $0.27c from every dollar goes to our prize pool, up to $5000 per lottery.

Our target is to sell 4000 tickets, which means we hope to raise $20,000.

If we do, then the total prize pool is $5,000. 

If we sell fewer than 4000 tickets, it could mean the prize pool is lower. If this happened, the value of the prizes decreases.
