And why are you surprised Sue?

OK - the way I read this is that companies that were effectively already paying more than the minimum wage to their employees have limited the Government forced "pay rise" to only being the minimum wage.  IE the Government has managed to create more people on the minimum wage than there was before - and they're upset about it?  My real bewilderment is about what did Sue expect?  The completely inflationary effect of every employee getting a $0.75 per hour pay rise regardless of their current pay level?

Hey - I lose out next year when everybody gets 4 weeks minimum holiday too - somehow I don't think that the Greens / Labour are going to come in to get me a fifth week?
