Throughout every federal government around the world, most have set in place minimum wages, that requires the basic legal pay of someone for any job. But some argue that raising it will increase inflation on items, which is probably what Americans hear a lot about, when actually they are lying to keep paying you the same amount for years. In America the minimum wage is $7.25/hour of the US dollar with the price of a Big Mac costing $3.25. Meanwhile in Australia we get paid the minimum wage of $17.70/hour AUD (equal to about $13.64 USD) while paying $4.81 for a Big Mac. Even with this minimum wage, mostly every company pays more than the minimum wage, up around the $20-$28 an hour mark in the Australian Dollar. Inflation has not seriously affected Australia at all. While the recent change to raise it to $17.70 was only last year, the United States has not changed the price of their minimum wage since 2009. Yes some sites may say that Australia's minimum wage is around $9.00/hour, but on the Fair Works website, it displays the correct information of minimum wages in Australia. Across the globe, Australia is considered the highest minimum wage country in the world today. What do you think about minimum wage?
