This week the Fair Work Commission in their ‘wisdom’ decided to throw another curve ball at small business owners. From 1 July this year, the minimum rates in all Modern Awards will be increased by 3%. While this is less than last year’s increase of 3.5%, it is difficult to understand how the Commission, given the current economic climate, can rationalise the increase. With inflation at its all-time low, small business owners will have to fork out the additional costs straight from their pockets as the market conditions simply provide no real prospect of increasing prices to soften the blow.
