If you work at this company Australia, you might feel like a slave. You are expected to work unpaid hours beyond your normal working day and will not get any pay rise each year. The company makes up the excuse that there is no money to increase pay. But they still send their executives to expensive award ceremonies.

UM... UM.... UM.... if you make a salary you don't get OT, even in the EU if you are a salary employee (not paid by the hour in a contract) you don't get OT. OT only occurs if you are paid by the hour. In the USA there are two situations depending on your State. Situation 1 is after 40 hours worked you 41 hour is OT. Situation 2 is if you work more than 8 hours in a day you get OT. I have turned down salary jobs because of the no OT situation. Salary jobs are mostly management jobs, but there are some jobs that are not management that pay a salary. No one, NO ONE is holding a gun to your head to work a salary job so quit complaining, you accepted the position and were told the terms.
Same in Ericsson Athlone. There was a pay freeze for years even if you got promoted. Although I'd say there was an exception for the favoured few.
We have the same stuff going on in Nokia USA New Jersey location. Want us to work on 5G late evenings, weekends, and not get paid. They say that Nokia's USA policy is that USA employees don't need to get paid overtime but Finland, Poland, France, India and I think China gets paid overtime pay. USA labor laws allow companies to NOT pay those who are professionals salary earners.
