Wages to rise for millions of Aussie workers

4 June, 2024

The Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU) welcomes the Fair Work Commission’s (FWC) decision today to increase minimum and award wages by 3.75%, which will deliver a real wage increase for 2.6 million workers.

The above-inflation pay rise means a full-time worker on the minimum wage will be $33.11 better off each week.

ACTU Secretary Sally McManus said this was a win for workers nationwide.

“Any day working people get a pay rise is a good day,” Ms McManus said.
