Minimum Wage rises
Monday, 03 June 2013 12:52
The Fair Work Commission has ruled the national minimum wage will rise to 622 dollars-20 a week, from 606 dollars-40 currently.
It's less than the 30 dollars a week increase sought by unions but more than the five dollars-80 wanted by business groups.
Last year the national minimum wage rose by 17 dollars-10 a week.
The increase affects 1.5 million people and is lower than last year's rise.
