   Nominal wages fell 0.2 pct to 276,296 yen, down for the second consecutive month.
   Of the nominal wages, regular pay increased 0.3 pct to 245,105 yen, showing that the pay hike trend is continuing.
   Meanwhile, special pay, such as bonuses, dropped 11.4 pct to 11,722 yen.
   A rise in the proportion of part-timers, generally paid lower than full-time workers, also contributed to the overall wage fall, according to the report.
