Suncorp has released its Wages Report titled The emergence of the fluoro collar worker
ACT workers are still the top wage earners, but WA and the NT are looming large in the rear view mirrors.
In November 1996 the ACT was Australia’s wealthiest state and the trend has continued 15 years later with the ACT recording the highest average wage among workers in our nation’s capital.
However growth is slowing, especially within the last five years, and considering its size is expected to lose the top crown to WA or the NT over the coming years.
The ACT however is the only state in Australia where the average female wage has broken through the $1000 mark and is comparable to males.
