0.8 per cent wage growth in manufacturing

The quarterly wage index for full-time employees in the manufacturing industry shows a 0.8 per cent increase in monthly earnings from 1st quarter 2000 to 2nd quarter 2000. The increase from 2nd quarter 1999 to 2nd quarter 2000 was 3.9 per cent, while the corresponding figure from 1st quarter 1999 to 1st quarter 2000 was 4.1 per cent.

Monthly earnings for employees in wholesale and retail trade rose by 2.1 per cent from 1st quarter 2000 to 2nd quarter 2000. Employees in real estate and business activities received a 1.6 increase in their monthly earnings, while the increase in oil and gas extraction and mining was 1.0 per cent. In the construction industry the increase was 0.9 per cent, while in transport and communication it was 0.7 per cent.

Change over a year

Employees in manufacturing had a 3.9 per cent growth in monthly earnings from 2nd quarter 1999 to 2nd quarter 2000. The corresponding growth for employees in oil and gas extraction and mining was 5.6 per cent, while employees in the construction industry had a growth of 4.7 per cent. Employees in real estate and business activities had an increase of 4.6 per cent, while those in transport and communication had a growth of 4.3 per cent from 2nd quarter 1999 to 2nd quarter 2000. Employees in wholesale and retail trade had a growth of 3.8 per cent in the same period.

Generally, the growth in monthly earnings was somewhat higher from 2nd quarter 1999 to 2nd quarter 2000 than it was from 1st quarter 1999 to 1st quarter 2000. However, the picture is somewhat different in manufacturing, which shows diminishing growth in monthly earnings for the same period.
