Meanwhile, the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ wage price index rose 3.3 percent annually and 0.8 percent quarterly in the December quarter.
Michelle Marquardt, head of ABS price statistics, said the hourly wage increase for the December quarter of 2022 was smaller than the 1.1 percent increase for the September quarter.
“However, it was higher than any increase in the December quarter in the last decade,” she said.
Analysts broadly expected quarterly growth of 1% and 3.5% for the year in the last quarter of 2022.
Private sector wages grew 0.8 percent for the quarter and 3.6 percent annually, beating the 0.7 percent quarterly improvement and the 2.5 percent annual increase in public sector wages.
Despite the improvement in wages, elevated inflation continues to erode workers’ wage growth.
In the December quarter, inflation rose 7.8 percent over the 12-month period, raising the gap between inflation and wage growth to a record 4.5 percent.
