The Bureau of Labor Statistics' quarterly report of Weekly Earnings for the US worker showed that wages increased 5.7 percent in the last year, outpacing consumer inflation which is at 4% year-over-year. This is a welcome change for workers who had seen their real wages fall during the post pandemic inflation spike.
