On 31st May the Fair Work Commission announced the annual wage increase.

Effective from the first full pay period on or after 1 July 2016, Modern Award minimum wages will be increasing by 2.4%, with weekly wages being rounded to the nearest 10 cents.

The Federal Minimum Wage will also be increasing from $656.90 to $672.70 per week, or from $17.29 to $17.70 per hour. This amounts to an increase of $15.80 per week, or 41cents per hour.
