Japan Nominal Wages Down for 1st Time in 3 Months

Japan Nominal Wages Down for 1st Time in 3 Months

   Tokyo, Jan. 8 (Jiji Press)--Nominal wages in Japan in November sagged 0.2 pct from a year before to 284,652 yen on average, down for the first time in three months, preliminary labor ministry data showed Wednesday.
   The drop came as overtime pay fell, mainly in the manufacturing industry, after production cutbacks due to U.S.-China trade friction and typhoons.
   Of the nominal wages, overtime and other nonregular pay in the manufacturing sector went down 11.9 pct. Overtime working hours at manufacturers declined 14.4 pct, posting a double-digit fall for two months in a row.
   Reduced overtime hours apparently pushed down pay.
   All-industry average nonregular pay decreased 1.9 pct to 20,304 yen.
