A public interest law group is offering its services to those who think they have a strong case in Queensland’s Stolen Wages debate. The Beattie Government has already begun handing out reparation of up to 4 thousand dollars – to Indigenous people who had their wages and savings withheld for almost a century. But the Public Interest Law Clearing House, Q-PILCH will assess those people who they think may have a strong case – and refer them on for private pro-bono legal representation.
