All employees

 

Real average hourly earnings for all employees increased by 0.4 percent from July to August, seasonally

adjusted, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. This increase stems from a 0.2 percent

increase in the average hourly earnings and a 0.2 percent decrease in the Consumer Price Index for All

Urban Consumers (CPI-U). The change in real average hourly earnings is the largest 1-month percentage

increase since November 2012.

 

Real average weekly earnings increased by 0.4 percent over the month due to the increase in real average

hourly earnings and an unchanged average workweek.

 

Real average hourly earnings increased 0.4 percent, seasonally adjusted, from August 2013 to August

2014. The increase in real average hourly earnings, combined with an unchanged average workweek,

Real average hourly earnings for production and nonsupervisory employees increased 0.6 percent from

July to August, seasonally adjusted. This increase stems from a 0.3 percent increase in average hourly
