Australia Has a $16 Dollar an Hour Minimum Wage

Good day mate.
Most workers are covered by an award, which may vary by employee age, geographical location and industry. For adults not covered by an award or agreement, the minimum wage is $16.37 per hour, $622.20 per week; set federally by Fair Work Australia. Junior workers, apprentices and trainees not covered by an award each have a minimum wage level set nationally. These amounts are in Australian dollars. In US dollars that comes out to $15.21 at current exchange rates, which is still twice the US federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. On top of that Australia has free health insurance.
