Posted by TechCrunch on Thursday, July 26, 2018 10:15:18The Australian Bureau of Statistics says in 2018, people were paid a total of $3.9 billion for their services, including $2.6 billion for human resources, $1.4 billion for primary resources, and $1 billion for other non-work related functions.
The bureau says these amounts include $1 million in wages and $5 million in bonus pay.
The median salary for an Australian worker is $57,600, which works out to an annual salary of $52,000.
However, in 2017, a new report showed Australians working full time earned $1,719,600.
That’s an increase of 6.1 per cent since the previous report, which was done in 2013.
It also showed that there was a rise in the number of people who worked less than 80 hours per week.
Key points: More Australians work for less than 40 hours a week than ever beforeThe Bureau of Resources and Energy Economics found in 2017 that Australians working more than 40% of their hours were paid less than $30 per hourIn 2017, Australians working for less that 40 hours were paying $7,600 less in wage and benefit payments than the median income of $57 and $42,000, respectively.
The Bureau of Resource and Energy, the Australian Bureau for Statistics and the Australian Council of Social Service are also working to improve the living standards of Australians who are working for more than one hour a week.
The Bureau for Resources and Economic Development, the department responsible for collecting and analysing the data, said the data was collected over time using a wide range of sources, including the ABS Job Seekers Register and Census.
The data was then used to calculate an annual average hourly wage of $22.60 across a range of different categories, including primary, secondary and other nonwork.
“This data is very useful for estimating the wages paid by Australian workers in terms of the median wage,” Chief Executive Tim Collins said.
“It allows us to look at how people earn in terms that are broadly representative of the workforce in Australia.”
The bureau also found that more people were working for zero hours per day or less in 2018.
This was up from the previous year, when there were more than 4.4 million workers working zero hours.
The bureau said the number working fewer than 40 per cent of their work hours had fallen by nearly 50 per cent from the 2016 to 2017 period.
More data needed on the state of Australia’s economy, including job growthThe bureau says more data needed from the state and territory governments, including on the economy, to better understand what the impact of the global economic downturn is.
The bureau is also hoping the Australian Taxation Office will provide more information on what is happening in Australia and the overall state of the economy.
“The Australian Government is looking to provide additional data to assist in this work and this is something we expect to be ongoing,” Collins said in a statement.
“We encourage people to share their views on the issue via our online discussion forum, Twitter or via our Facebook page.”
