Years On From The Financial Crisis, Millennials Fall Further Behind The Rest Of Society

Asesh Sarkar, CEO of employee loan provider SalaryFinance, said:

“The IFS’ report shows that, despite nearly three quarters (74%) of 16 to 64 years olds in work in Britain, wages have only just risen, in real terms, above the pre-financial crisis levels of 2007. “

“In reality though, this marginal increase has only impacted positively upon those 60 years and older. Millennials have had a worrying 7% decrease in their wages since the financial crisis and this report once again points to how the incomes of young adults have fallen so far behind the rest of society. For millennials, they face an unprecedented difficult situation of rising living costs, which their wages can’t match, and a personal debt crisis topping a record £180 billion this year.”
