Italian wage rises, consumer confidence hit new lows


Rome, January 28 - Hourly wages for employees in
recession-hit Italy were on average 1.5% higher in 2012 than the
previous year, Istat said on Monday, adding that this was the
lowest average rise in salaries since 1983.
The national statistics agency added that real wages fell
by 1.5% last year, the biggest drop since 1995.
This was because the average rise in hourly wages last year
was half the rate of inflation - 3%.
This means Italians' real wages were cut because prices
rose at a rate that outstripped salary increases.
Istat added that its consumer-confidence index dropped to
84.6 points this month from 85.7 in December, taking it to the
lowest level since the index's launch in January 1996.
