Pubs and clubs will be hit with higher staffing costs following a greater than expected pay rise given to workers on federal awards and minimum wage.

From October 1 the federal minimum wage will increase from $522.12 to $543.78 per week — a weekly increase of $21.66, or 4.15 per cent.

The standard minimum wage for casual workers will increase from $13.74 to $14.31 per hour — an increase of 57 cents per hour or 4 per cent. The increase will also flow on to junior employees for whom training arrangements apply.
