Increase the Minimal Wage
Remember - as at 1 April 2018 the minimal wage will increase to $16.50. This means that any existing Employee, regardless of their work status (Casual, Part-Time, Fixed Term etc.) currently paid less than $16.50 per hour, will need to have their hourly rate of pay increased to at least $16.50 per hour. Obviously other Employees who are currently paid marginally above this rate will also expect a pay rise to restore any previous relatively gaps that are eroded as a reset of this change.
