When looking at the EU
countries which have seen negative growth in real wages over the past few years, the UK is in bad company. According to analysis in the new report 'Benchmarking Working Europe 2018
' by the European Trade Union Institute, workers in the UK earned 2.4 percent less in real terms in 2017 than they did in 2010. This though is eclipsed by the devastating 19.1 percent fall in Greece.
