Australia is fortunate to host a very high minimum wage.

The average full time worker in Australia earns $AUD 6 671.00 per month (€ EUR 4 700.00).    If you are working as a casual employee (i.e on a per hour basis), it is mandatory your employer pays you at least the minimum casual rate of $AUD 21.47 (€EUR 15.00) per hour.

Wages are usually paid weekly or fortnightly.  Employers are required to pay tax and superannuation (social security) on behalf of the employee.  During weekends and holidays wages are usually higher than on working days.
