: Thanks! The minimum wage here in Australia is about the same as that, but doesn't it increase with age? Here, when you are 15, you get about $6/hr, then it increases by about $1.50/hour every year after that. Is it just one standard rate for everyone there? That's pretty crap!
the minimum wage differs from province to province. i'm in British Columbia, where the provincial gov't has set the minimum wage at $7.50 (or something like that.) and no, it doesn't increase with age. alberta, the province just east of British Columbia, has a minimum wage of $5.50 - but only because their cost of living is less, and their provinical tax is naught ...
