Wages paid by companies increased slightly at the end of the year

The total amount of wages paid by companies in the Helsinki region increased by 0.4 per cent in October–December. The improved employment situation in some growing sectors with better than average wages was enough to maintain the total sum of wages growing slightly compared with the previous year. Nonetheless, the sum of wages grew year-on-year significantly less than in previous years. The total sum of wages is still hampered by the poor employment situation.
