Average pay has fallen for millions of lower and middle income workers since 2010, TUC research says – inews.co.uk


Average pay has effectively fallen for millions of lower and middle income earners over the past decade, research has found.

Austerity and a lack of bargaining rights had held down pay in many jobs, according to the Trades Union Congress (TUC).

Real pay for earners in jobs paying between £9.56 and £12.73 an hour has dropped by 1 per cent since 2010.

This compares with a seven per cent increase for this group between 2002 and 2010.
