Wages in manufacturing up 1.1 per cent
The quarterly wage index for full-time employees in manufacturing shows that there was a 1.1 per cent increase in basic salaries from the third quarter of 2010 to the fourth quarter of 2010.
The increase in average monthly earnings was 1.4 per cent from the second quarter of 2010 to the third quarter of 2010.
“Average monthly earnings” includes basic salaries, irregular payments and bonuses. Bonuses are often paid at irregular intervals, which mean that this index is subject to greater fluctuations than the index for basic salaries. Overtime payment is not included in the statistics.
