ACTU Submission to the Annual Wage Review 2014-15

The ACTU is calling for a $27 increase in the minimum wage to $667.90 per week or $17.58 per hour.

The ACTU’s submission to the Fair Work Commission’s Annual Wage Review shows minimum wages are at a record low of 43.4% of average weekly full time earnings and that inequality in Australia will grow even further without a $27 pay rise for the lowest paid workers.
