Despite record low unemployment of 2.2 percent, according to the unions, not everything is going well for the employees. According to the unions, job security alone is useless if the wages are still not enough to live on. At its annual media conference on Monday morning, the Swiss Trade Union Confederation (SGB) also called for real wage increases and an automatic cost-of-living adjustment for the new year.

One recognizes the increase in wages for this year in many sectors. However, the pay gap is also widening. For example, workers with lower and middle wages have less real wages today than in 2016. Only the top ten percent have gone up.
