Pay is higher but it buys less

Pay's gone up much less than prices, as well all know.

Today's figure of £447 as the average weekly regular pay, compares with £392 six years ago, in 2007, before the financial crisis.

14% more.

In comparison, prices measures by the Retail Prices Index or RPI are up 21.5%.
