Western Australia: Minimum wage now $16.52 an hour! That's $627.70 a week!
Question is are we creating a monster wave of spoilt teenagers that think the world owes them a favour!!

AT LEAST 100,000 of WA's lowest paid workers will soon get a pay rise - with the state’s Industrial Relations Commission (IRC) deciding to lift the minimum wage today.

The WA IRC this afternoon announced its decision to award a 3.4 per cent increase, which will increase the minimum weekly wage by $20.60 to $627.70, or a minimum hourly working rate of $16.52.

The increase will be given to the 100,000 West Australian workers that are covered by State Awards, and those that are already on the minimum wage.

Ha, seriously? Well not too far off in the US with our rising costs for everything.

Sigh, people don't realize that in the age of fiat money, it really doesn't matter what they raise your minimum wage too. Its just going to cause disruption and prices will simply rise to reflect the new minimum wage. Plus politicians get to fool idiot voters into thinking it makes a difference.

You're lucky to rent a house for under $400 a week. A packet of smokes is about $17? You can get a loaf of bread for $1, but better quality $4-5.

Electricity is very expensive, and gas. And petrol is as well.

$600 a week doesn't go very far in Perth these days.

I would be a stock checker for that kind of dough. Only the younger crowd makes less. Most people in Australia won't accept a job under 16 an hour. Good for them.
