Pay – your share

While some (usually very well paid) people keep telling us we’re “all in it together”, the TUC has published a report highlighting the fact that UK workers are getting a falling proportion of national output. Had this kept up with where we were 30 years ago, workers would take home £60bn a year more between us.
The impact has been greatest amongst lower earners, reflecting the widening wage gap.
There’s even a tool where you can work out what your wage would be if workers’ share of national output hadn’t fallen over the last 30 years.
