Greens say minimum wage falls short

Greens Deputy Leader and workplace relations spokesperson says the decision of the Fair Work Commission to increase the minimum wage by $15.80 a week was better than what employers were pushing for but fell short of what low-paid workers deserved.

Mr Bandt said the decision will mean workers will just keep up with inflation.

“This is well short of what the lowest workers need. It means workers will only just keep up with inflation,” Mr Bandt said.
