UK wages rise at fastest pace since 2008 in Q2

Employment in the U.K. reached a record high and wages excluding bonuses grew at the fastest pace in a decade, but the unemployment rate increased in the three months to June.

The annual growth in average weekly earnings excluding bonuses accelerated at the fastest pace since the second quarter of 2008 to 3.9% in the three months to June, data from the Office for National Statistics showed.

Wages including bonuses grew 3.7% on an annual basis, compared with 3.5% in the previous rolling three-month period. The latest reading was in line with the Econoday consensus estimate.
