Australian minimum wage gets a raise

Australian minimum wage gets a raise Good news for millions of Australian workers — in June, the Fair Work Commission announced an increase in Australia’s National Minimum Wage and all modern award minimum wage rates by 3.75 per cent beginning 1 July 2024. The increase will bring the minimum wage up to $24.10 per hour, or $913.91 per week based on a 38-hour work week.

While the FWC says the increase will only make a modest contribution to the total amount of wages growth in 2024, it will surely make a difference to the 2.6 million employees — about 20.7 per cent of the Australian workforce — who will benefit from the rise in pay, many of whom work part-time hours or are casual employees. The commission cited mounting cost-of-living pressures as a reason behind the recent change. Read more about the ruling on the Fair Work Commission’s website.
