Spanish wages slowly rising

BREAKING NEWS: Russian forces killed nine civilians claims Governor of Donetsk Ukraine

WORKERS in Spain are slowly feeling the benefits of the economic recovery according to new data released by the Spanish Government´s central statistic unit.  

After years of recession, unemployment, reports of doom and gloom and a general acceptance of Spain´s meagre wages this news is a small step, but a step none the less, in the right direction.

 It comes amid on-going concerns over the lack of a stable Government in Spain and how this might have a negative consequence on the economy. 

The data which looks at macro-economic indicators shows that there was an increase of 1.7 per centin the average gross salary. This data coincides with a time of negative inflation in Spain which equates to a fall of 0.8 per cent of the consumer price index.  It shows the average salary across Spain as being €2,026.14 per month. 

Another outcome of the data is that it serves to prove the vast disparities on salary depending on region. 

The best figures are found in Madrid with €2,423, the Basque Country €2,387 and Catalunya €2,137, while at the other end of the scale are Extremadura €1,687, the Canaries €1,708 and the Comunidad Valenciana €1,762. 

Throughout the year, the most noteworthy rises were those of 4.6 per cent in the Canaries, 4.4 per cent in Castilla y León and 2.7 per cent in both Catalunya and Asturias. The only year-on-year decrease was reported in Castilla-La Mancha, Navarra and the Basque Country.
