the wages indicated here serve only as a guide, since in Australia there is a national minimum wage and there is a minimum for each type of work
(award). A worker could receive different
payment according to the traditional law of supply and demand
and may be different than shown in the table.
working wages in Australia is more than in New Zealand and less than in England, but on the other hand, the cost of living is cheaper in Australia than all the other countries mentioned above.
Actually what the Australian put in his pocket,
is pretty good in terms of wages X quality of life, but when it converts into Euros the value shrinks
a little but of course money is always welcome whatever the nationality.
If you are thinking to work in
you should know that everything is based on Payment per hour, payment per week and pay per Year. For some reason
they do not like per month, and when you see the
advertising jobs in newspapers, normally the salary
annual. Sometimes advertised salaries are per hour, and many companies like to confuse the competition (and also
the worker), saying simply that the salary is above the Minimum Wage
or the Award that is determined by the Fair
and they cannot be paid less than that.
The official minimum wage in Australia
is $ 16.37 per hour or $ 622.20 per week (2013). This gives a sum of $ 32 354 gross per year, based on full-time jobs with 40 hours a week. But for example a worker in a Fast food
the minimum is $ 17.98 and the Cook starts at $ 21.60 and may go to other
level for Chef up to $ 26.70 and a Head Chef to $ 28 per hour
(depends if you have the knives if you work overtime
