New national minimum wage increase revealed

The Fair Work Commission has unveiled its 2017–18 annual wage review decision, acknowledging the compound effect of increases over time.

This means that for about 200,000 workers who are paid the national minimum wage, base wages will increase from $18.29 an hour or $694.90 per 38-hour week to $18.93 an hour or $719.20 per week. Read the full article here.
