Wages in the UK

Total pay in some parts of the UK has shrunk by more than 10% since the start of the downturn in 2007, analysis by a union organisation suggests.  The TUC said north-west and south-west England had seen the sharpest cuts – 10.6% and 10.1% respectively.  It blamed wages not keeping pace with inflation and changes in employment, such as more part-time working.
