Wage/hourly rate? 2013

Post by ACT Michelle on Sun Jan 06, 2013 8:03 pm

Hi,

Does anyone know where I can find out what award dog groomers fall under? Casual rate for salon and full time wages??? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

If that link doesnt work there is this one from Fair Work Commission.

Thanks Chris.
Tossing up weather to go work in a salon or keep mobile. Hard decision.

Hmmm...thats a big decision, staying mobile at least you can dial in your own hours, working for a busy salon might be harder with the kids and all, what about setting up a salon at home, is this an option?

It's the money side of set up. Don't really have the room.
Now with mobile, it's busy, the phone doesn't stop-good thing!
If the right money and flexibility was offered I would seriously look at going to a salon.. No paper work or that sort of business stuff to do!

Yes love the choose my own hours of work, and days... But also would love to know after my day I'm done and don't need to do the paperwork side of things.

Full time adult minimum wages (21+ years old) as set by Fair Work Commission is:
Level 1 $606.40pw or $15.96ph
Level 2 $648.00pw or $17.05ph

Level 1 Juniors hourly (38 hours per week Full Time)
15yo $5.87
16yo $7.54
17yo $9.22
18yo $10.90
19yo $13.17
20yo $15.60

Level 2 Juniors (38 hours per week Full Time)
15yo $6.24
16yo $8.06
17yo $9.86
18yo $11.65
19yo $13.99
20yo $16.67

Then add in your 9% Super Benefit.

If they are employed on a casual rate then add 25% to the hourly rate and minimum 2 hour engagement.

We only come under level 1 or 2 at the moment as there is no trade qualifaction but this will change in 2013 year I believe.

Level 1
An employee at this level has been employed for a period of less than three months and is not carrying out the duties of a level 3 or level 4 employee.
Level 2
An employee at this level has been employed for more than three months and is not carrying out the duties of a level 3 or level 4 employee.
Level 3
An employee at this level has a trade qualification or equivalent and is carrying out duties requiring such qualifications.
Level 4
An employee at this level has advanced trade qualifications and is carrying out duties requiring such qualifications or is a sub-professional employee.


Sorry but I am passionate about wages as most employers get it wrong then get into the shit if there is a complaint from the employee to FWC.

Hope this helps to clarify misconception about our (groomers) rates.

Thanks for that information , I was under a different impression it seems I'm paying my casuals above award wage however they work far harder and much happier to work for me . I know on a contract base it seems to be 50% of takings as in what you groom.

Nothing wrong with paying them more Smile, dont like the contract way of life as I reckon you bust your butt for nothing at the end of the day as an owner..

I agree I have done contract work in my quiet seasons and when my salon was in its birth cycle it always left me feeling depleted .

50% seems high to me (as in the owner gets more than seems reasonable), but hey - if anyone in SE Melbourne wants to do contract work for me at those prices, I would be happy to pass work their way and take half for providing mobile salon, equipment and liability insurance cover. I have more work than I can handle.

I pay my bathers level 2 my groomers level 3 as long as the have some some sort of training, ie a 10 day block at the grooming school on breed specific standards and/or can do all the common breed cuts unassisted :-)
