The Trade Union Congress has released figures which suggest that workers in the East Midlands have suffered a huge squeeze on their incomes, with average pay falling by 5.7 percent - a loss of almost £26 in the pay packets of employees working a 40-hour week.
This figure is slightly lower than the national average fall of 6.3 percent (£30). However the figures demonstrate that the loss in pay is being felt by families in the East Midlands as incomes fail to keep pace with rising prices.
