Portugal is one of seven European Union countries where workers are earning less now than eight years ago, according to a study released on Monday in Brussels by the European Trade Union
Confederation (ETUC), in partnership with the European Trade Union Institute (ETUI).

According to the study, between 2009 and 2016, real salaries (corrected for inflation) fell by an average of 3.1 percent in Greece, 1 percent in Croatia, 0.9 percent in Hungary, 0.7 percent in Portugal, 0.6 percent in Cyprus, 0.4 percent in the United Kingdom and 0.3 percent in Italy.
The study also noted that in 18 countries real salary growth was lower between 2009 and 2016 than between 2001 and 2008, and just three countries – Germany, Poland and Bulgaria – saw salaries in the last eight years rise by more than in the previous eight years.
