Super increases already hurting wages: Grattan

April 30, 2018 - 21:07 -- Admin

A schedule to be confirmed on budget night will lift employers' contributions from 9.5 per cent of salary to 10 per cent in 2021, and then by an extra 0.5 points each year until 2025 when contributions reach 12 per cent.
