The decision by the Australian Fair Pay Commission to leave the 2009 federal minimum wage unchanged at $543.
ACTU Secretary Jeff Lawrence said unions were particularly outraged at such submissions to the Australian Fair Pay Commission (AFPC) when basic living costs were rising dramatically.
Although the decision emanated from new legislation, which explicitly references fairness and riving standards of the low paid, both the decision and the process by which it was reached closely resemble those of its predecessor, the Australian Fair Pay Commission (AFPC).
Australian Fair Pay Commission increases will be paid when they increase the minimum rate above the rate provided in the Agreement, closing the gap in pay rates for AINs and CSEs.
When the Australian Fair Pay Commission (FWA's predecessor) decided not to award any increase in minimum wages in 2009 it did so because it was primarily concerned about protecting jobs and supporting employment growth.
UNION CLAIMS VINDICATED The Australian Fair Pay Commission found in support of almost every proposition the ACTU has put in national wage cases over the past decade: * Minimum wages form part of the safety net and help to sustain the living standards of the low paid; * Vulnerable groups are over-represented among the low paid--including women in private sector employment--31% rely on award minimum rates; * Contrary to government claims, most low-paid workers keep most of the increase awarded and do not have it sucked away in withdrawal of government benefits and allowances; * Solid wages growth over recent years has not been identified by the Reserve Bank as contributing to recent higher inflation; * Regular moderate increases in minimum wages do not cost jobs.
Background In the immediate aftermath of the 2008-09 financial crisis, the last national wage decision given in July 2009 by the Australian Fair Pay Commission (AFPC) was to freeze Australia's Federal Minimum Wage.
