Netherlands - Lowest wage increase in 20 years - August 31, 2016

According to the national statistical office, the labour costs per hour in 2015 have increased at the lowest pace in 20 years. In some sectors labour costs even decreased. Thus is partly due to lower pension contributions by employers. The largest increase was in IT and communication (2.9%); in banking and financial services the costs decreased with 2.6% because of lower pension contributions. However, the banking and finance sector stayed on top of the ranking of hourly gross wages paid (55 euro); in the bottom of this ranking figures the hospitality sector (18 euro). The average hourly wage in 2015 was 33 euro.
