Award wages to increase by 2.4%

Print Version


The minimum weekly wage will increase by 2.4% after today's announcement of the Fair Work Commission's (FWC) annual wage review ruling.

The new weekly minimum wage will be $672.70— or $17.70 an hour — from July 1.

The FWC said they did not expect the change, similar to last year's 2.5% increase, to have a significant impact on employment rates.

The FWC's full statement is available here.
