Wage Rates 2020

WAGE RATES from 1 JANUARY 2020

Wage rates will generally increase by 2% from the 1 January 2019 rates. However, due to changes to the minimum rates prescribed by the Fair Work Commission in the middle of 2019, some rates increased after 1 July 2019 (Employee on Commencement, Market Research Interviewer, Support Employee less than 1 Year, Editor/ Coder/ Key-punch Operator, Team Leader) and those interim increases will be absorbed by the coming 2% increases, as set out in the table below, effective on the first pay period on or after 1 January 2020.
