If you are asking this question in the context of Skilled Migrant Residence, then a salary of $38 per hour for a full-time role, would mean that you can claim that you are in a Skilled Employment. This means that if you have sufficient points, you may apply for your EOI for Skilled Migrant Residence.
Your employer should be able to justify that the salary on offer is genuine and is not just being increased temporarily for the purpose of allowing you to apply for a residence visa.
