Wages rose by just 2 per cent in the 12 months to September

Wages rose by just 2 per cent in the 12 months to September

The Bank has expressed confidence on a number of occasions that wage growth would improve, but that confidence will be tested by the weakness apparent in these numbers.

"Annual wages growth increased marginally to 2.0 per cent in the September quarter 2017".

With wages growing by 0.5% over the quarter, that temporary boost likely masked what would have otherwise been a record-low level for wage growth.

However, the higher cost to employers of minimum wage earners has failed to deliver a meaningful boost in overall wage growth, which edged up by just 0.5 per cent in the September quarter.

The score ranges from zero to six where a 0 would indicate no evidence of book cooking, and a 6 would indicate a high likelihood. Savvy investors generally know how to stick with an investing plan but are able to adapt to any unforeseen market movements.

Australian wages accelerated by less than expected in the third quarter, despite a bump in minimum wages that economists had expected to lift the pay packets of around a quarter of workers.

Earlier this year, the Fair Work Commission awarded Australia's 2.3 million lowest paid workers a 3.3 per cent wage rise, which equates to $22.20 a week and was the largest increase in six years.

Even with tightening labour market conditions, wage growth is failing to respond.

'Handmaid's Tale' Season 2 Lands Hulu Premiere Date
On Tuesday, Hulu announced that its groundbreaking, Emmy-winning series " The Handmaid's Tale " will return in April 2018. According to Moss , the show's star and executive producer, "Season two is going to be bad too, really dark".

"In original terms, through the year wage growth to the September quarter 2017 ranged from 1.2% for the mining industry to 2.7% for health care and social assistance and arts and recreation services", the ABS said.

The Australian wage growth is expected to creep higher over the coming years as spare capacity in the labour market is gradually being eroded, job insecurity has fallen, and businesses are reporting some pockets of difficulty in finding suitable labour, ANZ Research reported.

"Western Australia recorded the lowest through the year wage growth of 1.3% and Victoria, Queensland and Tasmania the highest of 2.2%".
