ARA annual minimum wage survey

On behalf of the retail sector, the Australian Retailers Association (ARA) is undertaking a survey on the ability of retailers to pay for the coming minimum wage rate case for a submission to Fair Work. The ARA understands that the increase in minimum wage rates have added weight to retailers already treading to keep their heads above water.

Your input will assist the ARA to conclude that the retail industry’s ability to pay any additional pay increase around the minimum wage rate case is arguable.

The short survey should take around three minutes to complete. The survey can be found here.

The ARA thanks you for your time in participating.
