‘There won’t be a number’: Labor to lodge wage rise letter to Fair Work Commission

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese wrote to the Fair Labor Relations Commission a letter calling for an increase in the minimum wage.

However, the government does not specify how much wages should be raised.

Fairwork will make a decision next month, affecting more than 2 million workers.

Albanese’s decision not to give him the numbers he believes wages should rise is contrary to comments from his campaign demanding a rise in line with inflation of 5.1 percent.

“There won’t be a number in the submission,” Mr Albanese said.
