It is still not an average wage, what is the ‘average wage’ of politicians, the ‘average’ pension of retired people who don’t have other income who worked before superannuation was forced upon employers, and if politicians did not rape and destroy the Pension Scheme, money which accumulated from the 7% paid into the Pension Fund from the wages received by people who had a job. This was peoples’ own money, saved in the Fund to draw a pay when retired, there was $$$$$$ billions in that fund. Will you post an average of income tax, an average of the the amount tax collected and squandered by governments on useless projects How about posting the average of a household’s cost of living which increases by a greater percentage than the ‘average’ wage including the average vehicle registration which increased again in Qld. much more than the CPI. The real people in Australia who live in the real world and do a job which benefits Australia’s citzens are not paid a wage anywhere near to ‘The Average Wage’.
