‘Pretty hard to argue against’ wage increase: Plibersek

Environment and Water Minister Tanya Plibersek says it is “pretty hard to argue against” an increase to the minimum wage. “We see fair increase as keeping up with the cost of living,” she told Sky News Australia. “We think that people earning $20.33 an hour really deserve a pay rise of a dollar an hour,” she said. “It’s pretty hard to argue against that.”
