• St Helens sees wages fall

    Under this Tory Government, workers in St Helens have seen wages fall and prices rise.

    Figures Conor has obtained from the UK Statistics Authority show that average weekly earnings for workers in St Helens North was £411.50 last year – down from £435.80 in 2010. That’s a drop of £24.30.

    At the same time, inflation has consistently pushed up prices, and new figures out today show the inflation rate is at a five year high of 3%, meaning higher prices on the weekly shop for families in St Helens.

    This Government is failing workers and families who deserve a fair wage and fair prices in the shops.
