The TUC has warned of “pay misery without end” after a report published today forecasts that annual pay reviews will be below inflation for most private sector employees.

Responding to analysis by XpertHR, TUC general secretary Frances O’Grady said: “This looks like pay misery without end.

“Britain needs, but is not getting, a pay rise. But without more spending power in people’s pockets it will be hard to sustain the recovery.

“Already the deficit is much greater than expected because the tax take is down. The economy is looking more fragile than even a few months ago.”
