The lack of workers filling positions helped the total average weekly wages increase by 3.4 percent leading up to December 2018. Earnings growth also saw an increase of 3.4 percent, excluding bonuses. Chief UK economist at the consultancy Pantheon Macroeconomics, said, “With surplus labor extremely scarce and job vacancies rising to a new record high, workers are having more success in obtaining above-inflation pay increases.” Firms across the nation are facing greater difficulty hiring skilled workers amid record low unemployment not seen since the 1970s.
