Salary increase will help Australians with cost of living pressures

Australian Workers’ Union national secretary Daniel Walton says a big part of helping Australians cope with rising cost-of-living pressures “is making sure they get a fair and equal pay rise”.

“This hasn’t happened in quite a while… it’s obviously something that has been talked about widely through the RBA and by many other academics who have said that Australians deserve a fair pay rise,” he told Sky News business editor Ross Greenwood.

“This is just a small, modest raise for fair and hardworking Australians to get this raise to the minimum wage.”
