In this Policy Bites special, Dr J Rob Bray of the ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences looks at minimum wage rates, and why an increase, on its own, may not drastically improve the lives of many of Australia’s lowest-paid workers. Listen here: https://simplecast.com/s/f9bb1be0

Dr J Rob Bray is an ANU researcher in the College of Arts and Social Sciences, who spends a significant part of his time undertaking commissioned research and evaluations, in addition to a range of his own research projects and providing guest lectures and seminars. His research interests range across a wide span of social policy areas, including the interaction of social policy with the economy. This has included work on the interaction of the tax-transfer system and the role of the Australian minimum wage.
