The Fair Work Commission has announced a 2.4% increase to minimum wages
The new national minimum wage will be $672.70 per week or $17.70 per hour.
So what does that mean to you?
If you are currently receiving the national minimum wage then your employer will need to pass on the increase from the first full pay period starting on or after 1 July 2016.
The increase won’t affect employees who are already getting paid more than the new minimum wage.
