Meanwhile most other developed economies will see wage growth, with the OECD average at +2.6%, UK wages are on track to fall by 0.5% by the end of 2018, the TUC says.

This will leave British workers' wages 6.8% lower than pre-crash levels. Of the OECD nations, only Greece and Italy have seen larger falls in earnings.
