The Welsh pay packet has fallen by 8.1 % since the recession began in 2008, according to the TUC, with total pay across Wales falling by more than £2.3bn. The union has released figures on the Welsh economy to coincide with the launch of its Britain Needs a Pay Rise campaign.
The TUC says wages failing to keep pace with inflation, reduced working hours and the replacement of middle and relatively well-paid public sector jobs with lower paid jobs in the private sector, have contributed to the fall.
