Britain is fourth for the sharpest fall in wages in Europe - only Greece, Portugal and the Netherlands have suffered larger declines.
House of Commons library figures show there has been a 5.5% reduction in average hourly wages since mid-2010. It means British workers have felt the squeeze more than those in countries which have been rocked by the eurozone crisis.
Meanwhile, Bulgaria had the biggest increase of hourly wages at 13.2%. Also, Germany saw a 2.7% rise.
