From today (1 July 2015) Australia’s 1.8 million lowest-paid workers will receive a minimum wage increase of 2.5 per cent. Be sure to check your payslip to make sure that your employer is paying you correctly.

Low paid workers including cleaners, shop assistants, restaurant workers, farm hands, administration and health care workers will see an increase of 2.5% in their pay.

While every dollar helps, unfortunately there are still more than 1.8 million Australian workers and their families who are struggling to afford the basics on minimum wages that are at a record low as a percentage of average weekly earnings.

Many minimum wage earners have been working all their lives caring for older Australians in aged or community care, cleaning schools and hospitals or looking after people with disabilities, they deserve to earn a decent wage.
