The group said the rise was the result of higher pay in both the industrial and service sectors, with take-home
pay growth for people working in industry rising for the first time this year following the revival in manufacturing.
In the next 5 years we will explore the take-home
pathways as well as other pathways of pesticide exposure among children, including the dietary pathway.
"Those who are struggling with mortgage repayments are still faced with paying a large percentage of take-home
pay but there may be some release of pressure as earnings continue to rise.
Douglas McWilliams, chief executive of economics consultancy cebr, which analyses the index for VocaLink, said: "With 2007 showing the lowest growth in take-home
pay for two years, we believe the Bank of England will cut interest rates in this first quarter."
Although possible confounding-exposure to a variety of OP pesticides and not only those used exclusively in agriculture--makes these findings less persuasive than the vehicle and household dust association, they still lend further support to the take-home
exposure pathway hypothesis.
The resolution said the DepEd order was contrary to the 2017 General Appropriations Act's provision mandating that an employee's monthly net take-home
pay cannot be reduced by loan deductions below the P4,000 threshold.
pay for manufacturing workers fell 0.5% and millions of public sector workers had 1% less.
Douglas McWilliams, of the Centre for Economics and Business Research, who carry out the study, said: "Despite a modest tick up last month, the gap between inflation and take-home
pay growth remains substantial."
The growth rate of workers' take-home
pay edged ahead by just 0.3 per cent during October, to leave people's pay 3.4 per cent higher than it was 12 months ago, according to payment group VocaLink.
The group said a first-time buyer couple who were both in the bottom quarter of earnings, meaning they had a combined annual take-home
pay of pounds 25,899, would now have to save up the equivalent of 90% of their annual post-tax earnings, or pounds 25,600, to pay for a deposit and stamp duty on the typical home.
