Minimum Wage to Increase to $15.25

The minimum wage will increase by 50 cents to $15.25 an hour on 1 April 2016, Workplace Relations and Safety Minister Michael Woodhouse announced today.
 

The starting-out and training hourly minimum wages rates will increase from $11.80 to $12.20 per hour, remaining at 80 per cent of the adult minimum wage.

“The Government has once again taken care to ensure the right balance has been struck between protecting our lowest paid workers, and ensuring jobs are not lost,” says Mr Woodhouse.

List a new job

thanks to your service of putting my details on your homepage I found a fun grape-picking job last season in Martinborough. As I'm not originally from the wine industry I won't need your information any more as this was just a holiday job for me. Thank you very much again for your help !! Lots of success for you in the future. And by the way: I know that my fellow French grape pickers found the job through your website as well. So you've done even more people good !!
