Scott Morrison Coalition

This morning Wage Price Index data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics showed continued "subdued" -- almost comatose -- wage growth. And it's not good news for Malcolm Turnbull and Scott Morrison.

The WPI rose 0.5% in the June quarter and 2.1% in the year to June on a seasonally adjusted basis -- the same result as in March. The overall figure of 2.1% was the same in trend and original terms.
