Date:
01 March 2016

On 1 March 2016 the Fair Work Commission, in conjunction with the Industrial Relations Society of Victoria, launched an exhibition called The history of the Australian minimum wage.

The exhibition was accompanied by a paper called The history of the Australian minimum wage (PDF) which brings together, probably for the first time, the basic wage, national wage and safety net decisions of the last 100 years together with the movements in the Australian minimum wage.
