& # 39; Wage growth is low and shows few signs of recovery & # 39 ;, said Friday in its statement on monetary policy for November.

While wage growth remains weak, recruitment agency Michael Page has found the industries that offer the most generous wage increases for those transferring.

Australian wages in the public and private sectors increased by 2.3 percent in the year until the end of June.
