Employees’ reluctance to find new jobs is driving down wages, says ONS
Wage growth in the UK is being impacted by slow movement in the jobs market, analysis from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) has suggested, with experts warning social mobility risks going backwards as a result. ONS statistics showed just 10.9 per cent of workers changed their employer in both 2017 and 2018 – higher than the post-recession low of 5.7 per cent but still sluggish enough to impact wages despite record levels of employment. The low levels of job-switching indicate people are not aware of the choices available to them or may consider it too risky to change employer, the ONS suggested. Concerns were also raised over social mobility. Changing employer is the best way to secure a pay rise, but it benefits higher-skilled employees more than those at the bottom of the pay scale, the data revealed.
