Real wages are up for the eighth month in a row and 973,000 more disabled people are in work since 2013

As the UK celebrates its first ever ‘Purple Tuesday’ highlighting the huge potential of disabled consumers’ £249bn spending power, new figures show more than half of disabled people are now in work, outnumbering those who are workless.

In a further boost to the economy and consumer spending, wage growth outpaced inflation for the eighth month in a row, rising 0.9% in real terms (against CPIHinflation). Regular pay before inflation grew at its fastest in almost a decade, 3.2%.
