Infographic showing real wage growth in comparison to other G7 nations

International Labour Organisation data shows that over the course of 2007-2011 British workers suffered the largest falls in real wages (wages after taking into account price rises)  of any G7 economy. Whilst workers in many countries saw their real terms pay rise, real wages fell heavily in the UK adding to an unprecedented squeeze in living standards.
