Anglicare says minimum wage rise not enough to compensate해운대안마 for lost jobs
If your employer pays you minimum wage for working 24 hours a day, he or she will provide $22.50 a week.
It’s called the universal living wage, and it has been embraced by countries around the world for decades as the best way to ensure that workers are paid at least enough to afford food, shelter and health insurance.
“It is a reasonable wage, it provides a decent standard of living, you wouldn’t make as much if you made minimum wage,” said Dr John Skelton from the University of Western Australia.
“Most people, the overwhelming majority of Australians, would find a minimum wage-related expense that would be prohibitive enough to put their welfare in danger.”
The report will look at different aspects of the minimum wage, including the impact on employment and income.
Dr Skelton said the higher the minimum wage is, the less it will cost employers.
“The main thing you’ll find out if the minimum wage has cost employers their jobs, is if the employer gets caught with a large amount of cash in their bank account,” he said.
“So if you have an increase in the minimum wage, there will be more to spend on benefits, on housing, on health.
“So employers will have to consider their future employees and how to ensure that all their workers are getting the minimum wage they pay.”
