I was reading an article this morning that reported that the current "average" wage in Australia at the moment is $81, 947. Just let that sink in a little.......Now I know in my head how the average is worked out, but that doesn't make it any easier to digest knowing that the average Aussie doesn't even come close to earning that sort of money.
I don't know about you but I'm earning a whole lot less than the "average". In fact both my husband and I earn tens of thousands less than the average wage, which I'm sure is the case with the majority of Australians. It makes you wonder how differently the country would be run if the wage of an "average" Australian was actually used.
