Germany -Largest increase of earnings since 2008 -September 22, 2015

According to the results of the quarterly survey of earnings, the index of nominal earnings rose 3.2% from the second quarter of 2014 to the second quarter of 2015. The Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) reports that this led to a 2.7% rise in the index of real earnings. This was the largest increase since this time series had first been compiled in 2008. The strongest increases on a pre-inflation, or nominal basis, were in eastern Germany and in the unskilled, low-wage sector.
