Salaries increase 3.43% in July, says INDEC
The state-run INDEC statistics bureau has revealed wages went up 3.43 percent in July compared to June, and 23.28% during the first semester of 2014, surpassing the inflation rate measured by the institute.
According to the Salary index published by INDEC, wages from unregistered labor increased 29.3% during the first six months of 2014, followed by public sector wages (23.7%) and registered labor (21.2%).
Comparing July against June, registered labor wages went up 4.13%, followed by unregistered labor (3.3%) and public sector workers (1.9%).
Public sector workers are the ones who benefited less, as collective bargains are still not fully effective in the sector.
