The Low Pay Commission makes recommendations to the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment designed to set a minimum wage that is fair and sustainable.
When appropriate the minimum wage can be adjusted to assist as many low-paid workers as possible without harming overall employment or competitiveness.
The Low Pay Commission has recommended an 80 cent increase in the 2023 National Minimum Wage. Read the Low Pay Commission Annual Report 2022.
