Launch of the ILO Global Report on Wage, Brussels, 15 December

ILO Global Wage Report cover

What? This flagship report provides analysis of wage trends during the crisis using the latest world, regional and country-level estimates. While the previous Global Wage Report 2008/09 reviewed wages during the generally favorable economic period between 1995 and 2007, the current edition looks at wages during 2008-09 – a period characterized by the deepest economic downturn since the 1930s.
