Full-time government jobs have an average allowance of $ 95,804.

In other words, almost one in six of the 12.9 million employees in Australia are civil servants.

More than 78 percent, or 1.6 million, of Australian civil servants work for a state or territory government, of which 649,000 work as teachers or in educational positions.
