MethodologyEdit

The minimum wages listed refer to a gross amount, that is before deduction of taxes and social security contributions, which vary from one country to another. Also excluded from calculations are regulated paid days off, including public holidays, sick pay, annual leave and social insurance contributions paid by the employer.

For the sake of comparison, an annual wage column is provided in international dollars, a hypothetical unit of currency calculated based on the purchasing power parity of household final consumption expenditure. For calculating the annual wage, the lowest general minimum wage was used.

  Australia Most workers are covered by an award, which may vary by employee age, geographical location and industry. Workers receive mandatory employer superannuation contributions of at least 9.5% of wages, alongside loadings such as penalty rates or leave loading. Minimum wages are set federally by the Fair Work Commission.

For those 21 and older, not covered by an award or other instrument, the minimum wages is A$753.80 ($535.63 USD) per week, or A$19.84 ($15.36 USD) per hour.[21] Casual workers are paid a loading of typically 25%, resulting in a minimum of A$24.80 (US$19.25) per hour for those workers.

Workers under 21, apprentices and trainees not covered by an award, have a minimum wages set at a percentage of the ordinary rate.[21] For those under 16, this is 36.8% or A$7.30 per hour; A$9.13 with the casual loading.[22]
