UK job­less rate falls de­spite salary gains

China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE -

Un­em­ploy­ment fell more than econ­o­mists fore­cast in the three months through Novem­ber in the United King­dom, even as pay growth ac­cel­er­ated to its fastest in more than two years and the econ­omy con­tin­ued to add jobs. Wages ex­clud­ing bonuses grew 1.8 per­cent from a year ear­lier, up from 1.6 per­cent in the quar­ter through Oc­to­ber, the Of­fice for Na­tional Statis­tics said in London on Wed­nes­day. That’s the big­gest in­crease since the third quar­ter of 2012.
