The average salary in Australia for full time work was $67,860 as at 20th March 2022, which is about $1,610 per fortnight (au.jobted.com). Meanwhile, a person on Job Keeper with no children receives $642.70 per fortnight – or $16,710.20 per year. It’s a big gap, isn’t it?
Fortunately, we’ve got plenty of jobs listed at Employment Plus and we can help you earn your worth! Most of our jobs have an average full time salary ranging between $40-$70k per annum.
Using the ATO’s simple Tax Calculator, the tax paid on a $40k salary for the last financial year was just $4,102, which means you’d still be taking home around $20k more a year than being on Job Keeper.
