Wages in the UK have seen one of the largest falls in the European
Union during the economic downturn, according to official figures.
Figures from the House of Commons library show average hourly wages
have fallen 5.5% since mid-2010, adjusted for inflation, which is the
fourth-worst decline in the 27-nation bloc.
By contrast, German hourly wages rose by 2.7% over the same period.
