The Fair Work Commission has announced a 2.5% increase to minimum wages for workers covered by Australian modern awards. The increase will apply from the first full pay period starting on or after 1 July 2015.

The new national minimum wage will be $656.90 per week or $17.29 per hour. The national minimum wage applies to employees who aren’t covered by an award or agreement.

Most employees are covered by an award. Award rates will increase by 2.5%.

Justice Ross said this year’s increase is lower than last year’s due to low inflation and aggregate wage growth, along with a rise in unemployment.

The  decision directly affects more than 1.86 million employees who are reliant on modern award rates of pay in Australia.
