Divisions in wage growth revealed

Wages have been falling sharply in the UK as a share of the national wealth since the mid-197s, although a "rich minority" have seen increases, a new study shows.

Workers on low incomes have seen increases of 27% over the past 3 years but wage rises for the top 1% of earners have been four times higher, according to the TUC.

The report found a "sharp divide" between professions, with medical practitioners enjoying a 153% rise since the late 197s and bakers' wages falling by 1%.
