Minimum wage to rise by $13 a week

Australia’s lowest-paid workers will get a $13 a week pay rise.

This means the national minimum wage will rise by 1.75 per cent to $753.80 a week from July 1, the Fair Work Commission announced on Friday.

Peak union body the ACTU had argued for a four per cent rise this year, while business groups had argued the minimum wage should be frozen until mid-2021 to enable people impacted by the coronavirus-driven downturn to find jobs.
