NATIONAL MINIMUM WAGE INCREASES
A national minimum wage increase of 3.4% with effect from 1 July 2011 was granted by Fair Work Australia in June 2011. This increase in minimum wage rates impacted the wage price index (WPI) in the September quarter 2011.
CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
Some Public sector enterprise agreements that usually impact the September quarter will occur later than usual as new agreements are implemented. The September quarter 2011 Public sector original series therefore show lower growth than normal. Adjustments have been applied to the seasonally adjusted series to take this into account.
