Commenting on the latest labour market data published today (Wednesday) by the Office for National Statistics - which show real earnings falling by 0.6% - TUC General Secretary Frances O'Grady said:

"Real wage growth has now fallen for the second month in a row. Unless the government gets its act together, we'll soon be in the middle of another cost of living crisis.

"Ministers must focus on delivering better-paid jobs across the UK. And it's time to bin the artificial pay restrictions on nurses, midwives and other public sector workers.

"Britain needs a pay rise, not more pressure on household budgets."
