Workers Still £14 A Week Worse Off Than A Decade Ago, Says TUC

Commenting on today’s (Tuesday) labour market statistics from the Office for National Statistics, which show wages rising above inflation for the first time in 12 months, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:

“Unions have won pay rises for workers across the UK, from the counters at McDonald’s to the factory floor at Ford.

“But wage growth is still weak. Workers are £14 a week worse off than they were in 2007 – with pay packets not expected to return to their pre-crisis level until 2025.

“This is why tens of thousands of people will march through London on Saturday 12 May as part of the TUC’s ‘A New Deal for Working People’ demonstration.

“The government must get the economy working again for working people. Ministers need to increase the minimum wage to £10 an hour, fund a proper pay rise for all public servants, and give workers stronger rights to negotiate fair pay deals.”
