A fight for a decent minimum wage

The National Retail Association’s (NRA) call for a 0% pay,  a freeze on the minimum wage, meaning Australia’s lowest paid workers would receive a real cut to their pay. The NRA asked the commission to “give full and genuine consideration to the prospect of a 0% change to minimum wages” in the 2018 review.

 The Australian Council of Trade Unions’ call for a 7.2% rise, or $50 a week for the lowest paid.
