New Wage Rise Fed Goverment - Do I get it ?

Discussion in 'The Pub' started by PJ2, Nov 25, 2006.

  1. I'm looking for somebody to out my mind at ease.

    As you most proberbly know as of 1st December low income earners will get a wage rise of about $27 a month. I fall into this catorgory, but what I am wondering is I am 4 months into a new 2 year traineeship and on my contract my wage is specified as $11.50 or something.

    So do I get the wage rise on not ?

  2. Perhaps contact Wageline or check Wagenet on the intranet - is your pay specified in your contract as being subject to change or is it 'locked in'? Let us know how it goes.
  3. As I understand it apprentices and traineeships aren't currently subect to the adult minimum wage conditions unless you are already legally an adult.

    This may vary from state to state though... I agree ring wageline.
