Switzerland - Report on wage differentials - June 30, 2017

A trade union report on income differentials and inequality describes how the gap between the lowest and highest wages has widened in 2016. Trade union Unia analysed the wages in 40 large companies. The management pay increased on average beyond 7%. The ordinary workforce received a sober 0.7% pay increase. The consequence is that the wage ratio changed from 1 to 1150 in 2015, to 1 to 1165 in 2016. Top earners are the managers in the food processing and chemical sectors.
