The median figures will be affected by both the high paid executives, and the large number of part time positions. My guess, based on knowledge of Commonwealth Government incomes for average employees, is that these figures are actually pretty close. The Median average may be about 90% of the above Mean Average.

 

These figures are based on CASH WAGES and SALARIES. The final remuneration will be increased by various benefits, which will include compulsory superannuation contributions and other allowances.
