Sad but true that many people are working for less than the minimum wage....

The hard law of supply and demand.........many, many unskilled workers trying to get into the shrinking unskilled jobs market.

On the positive side this should give a small increase in cash rates for some workers....

Many small business especially small Asian shops rarely pay more than $10 - $11 per hour (cash to hand). No super, no reporting tax... Government has a lot to do in this area as grey market among especially immigrants seems to be prevailing in Australia.

How insulting!! The gentleman asked if there is an award rate for his profession and Sajin there is an award rate for most professions which outlines the minimum wage. Sorry I can not help you beyond this,

This seems to be falling right now....many small businesses are having a hard time and laying off employees.
I know of unskilled workers having their hours reduced and a lower rate of pay.....$9 p/h cash....

Regarding software engineers pay......

This is usually dependent on skill and relevant experience and is often in a contract situation.
I do not know any software guys who are not working contract.......
Perhaps "Elance" could help...
Average pay rates could be consulted for a local price....?

There are a few employers who tries to outsource jobs via the internet (outside AU) and pay USD$4.00/hour for data entry/customer service/order processing and stuff for maybe 15hours or less per week and pay around USD$17.00/hour for operations manager (with the same working hours as above) this kind of bracket is for a retail shop that I know of.

A lot are finding ways on how to cut costs in order to save up more.

good to have a minimum salary even for part time jobs or students jobs... so many people take advantage of a lack of min salary to exploit students
