In Reply to: in Oz everyone is on minimum wage posted by Dionne on October 11, 1999 at 12:55:49:
I don't know what the minumum wage is in Australia, but we recently had pay rises. Our 19 y.o. rate is $11.94 and the 20 y.o rate (my rate) is $14.04. The 19 y.o rate was 11.60 until it went up recently. I got a pay rise two weeks in a row that time. First the one that everyone got, then the next week I turned 20, so I went up to the 20 y.o. rate. Just wondering as a comparison do you get paid these rates too?
