The Fair Work Commission will announce the result of its minimum wage review tomorrow, Wednesday 15 June 2022, at 10am AEST.
The announcement is one of the most eagerly anticipated in years, after rising inflation and falls in real wages took centre stage during the election campaign.
The Albanese government has argued for a rise which ensures wages do not go backwards when compared to inflation, which sits at 5.1 per cent.
Unions have pushed for a 5.5 per cent increase which they say will prevent a further real wage cut for a quarter of all workers.
Last year the national minimum wage increased by 2.5 per cent to $772.60 a week, or $20.33 an hour.
The decision will be broadcast via a link that will be available tomorrow on the Fair Work Commission website: https://www.fwc.gov.au/
