Increase in Minimum Wage Rate 1 April

Minimum wage rates will increase to $15.25 from 1 April (and training rates from $11.80 to $12.20).  This is a 3.5% increase in times where inflation is down at 0.1%.

This continues to add pressure to those of your staff currently paid only slightly above the minimum wage, where you will have to give additional increases to maintain some sort of differential.

Don't forget to check your casual employees as well to make sure you comply.
