Award wages look up
Can anyone tell me where I can look up what an “Award wage” is for a particular profession?
The site I use is Safe work SA here is the link:
Hope that helps
Would you care to expand on this?

There are examples of this in the UK I know but it seems to be the plan here.
On the positive side of this, many do not bother with years of training and just get a job, this creates a skill shortage and we all get to move to Australia to fill the skills gap.:):):)
Award wages, well for a sparky its around $24 an hour but most companies offer more due to the fact that it is well out of date and sparks are in demand.
That’s what I am hoping. I am a mechanic and do not think we could live on the award wage. See a lot of ads offering above award wages and wanted to get some idea what the wage would be.
Me and my Wife are moving to Adelaide in October and i myself am a motor mechanic. I have afew job interviews lined up for when we arrive. I like you am abit confused by the Award Wages but dealership i have an interview with has been able to offer me upto $1000 per week. Which is a little more than what i currently get here in the UK. Just wondering if you have any interviews lined up? Do you work for a main dealer?
