LNP Leader Deb Frecklington said she was disgusted to hear that hardworking security guards from the Commonwealth Games were still owed thousands of dollars in overtime.

"How many more payroll debacles are we going to see from Labor?" Ms Frecklington said.

"Today we asked the Premier what she was doing about claims that security guards for the Commonwealth Games are owed thousands of dollars in pay and overtime by GOLDOC and all she could say was that she would 'chase it up'.

"Paying workers their wages is not rocket science, but Labor screws it up time and time again.

"All workers deserve to be paid in full and on time.

"People plan their household budgets around payday and it causes real hardship when the money doesn't come through.

"Just a week ago Annastacia Palaszczuk ordered an inquiry into 'wage theft', but it seems the Palaszczuk Government is the biggest wage thief in Queensland."

LNP Shadow Commonwealth Games Minister John-Paul Langbroek said it was outrageous that security staff are being ripped off while Labor is paying out $650,000 in bonuses for GOLDOC bosses.

"The Commonwealth Games saw a public transport shambles, athletes sidelined by the Premier and the Gold Coast become a ghost town," Mr Langbroek said.

"Labor's Commonwealth Games screw-ups are still going and the scandal of missing wages is the worst of all.

"Labor has rewarded GOLDOC executives for failure and allowed ordinary workers to be dudded.

"This payroll fiasco is a disgrace and Annastacia Palaszczuk needs to fix it fast."
