New data from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) has confirmed that pay in Britain under this Tory-led coalition government is now officially falling. The ONS figures released in August shows that wages, including bonuses, fell during the April-June quarter by 0.2%. Even if you remove the bonuses element, wages only went up by 0.6% - the worst figures since the ONS begun compiling these records back in 2001.
