Fair Work lifts minimum wage by 3%

The Fair Work Commission has announced a 3.0% increase to minimum wages following its 2019 Annual Wage Review.

The new national minimum wage will be $740.80 per week or $19.49 per hour.

The increase applies to base pay rates from the first full pay period starting on or after 1 July 2019.

The change only applies to employees that get their pay rates from the national minimum wage, a modern award or in some cases a registered agreement.

Fair Work Australia will issue updated payrates in a few weeks.
