Wage Case

THE Western Australian Government has called for an extra $17 a week to be added to the minimum wage. The Government’s submission to the State wage case aims to maintain parity between the adult minimum wage and the award minimum wage.

Consumer and Employment Protection Minister John Kobelke said the Federal national wage case this month granted a $17 a week increase that should now flow on to State awards.

The new rise would mean workers are getting paid an extra $80.40 a week – a 22 per cent increase from when Labor first took office.
