Pay lagging; ROUND-UP britain.

PAY deals continue to lag behind inflation despite brighter prospects for the economy, according to a new report.

A study by XpertHR found the going rate was 2%, which is 1.3% below the latest RPI inflation figure. Median increases over the past year were 2%, compared with 2.3% in the previous 12 months.

The study of more than 1,200 settlements showed that workers in the public sector, where pay has been capped by the Government, received a 1% wage increase. One in 10 settlements involve a wage freeze, down from one in five last year and over a third in 2009.
