According to the ILO, last year real wages in the G20 countries increased by 2.1%. The growth rate of the indicator slowed down compared with a rise of 2.7% in 2016. The countries with a developed economy that were part of the G20, where there was a recovery in economic growth and a decrease in unemployment, showed the weakest real wage growth since 2014 - only by 0.4%. At the same time, in countries with a developing economy that are members of the G20, an increase of 4.3% was observed. ILO Director-General Guy Ryder noted that, according to preliminary data, wages continue to grow slowly this year.
