The most common form of wage theft is when your employer doesn’t pay you the prescribed hourly rate as set out in your award or agreement.
The current minimum wage in Australia is $18.93 an hour, or $719.20 a week.
If you are being paid less than this, then you are being ripped off, and you need to take action.
Most workers are paid a higher hourly rate, but how much higher depends on the award or agreement that you work under.
