According to the bulletin, from 2021 to 2022 there has been a higher wage increase than the National Consumer Price Index (INPC).

Workers can celebrate the good news. This is said because during the month of October, 67.8% of the negotiated wage adjustments were above inflation.

The information is taken from the newsletter Salariômetro – Labor Market and Collective Negotiations, published every month by the Foundation for Economic Research Institute (Fipe). Below, check out the salary increase details.

Salary increase is higher than expected

According to the institution, from 2021 to 2022, there was a readjustment movement above the national consumer price index (INPC). In short, the average salary increase readjustment was 8.1%. The calculation was made from a study of 283 corrected instruments.

In October, the average minimum was R$1,518. The accumulated INPC in the last 12 months is 7.2%.

The study notes that 16.6% of the negotiations implied an adjustment equal to the INPC, while 15.5% of the analyzed instruments were below inflation.

Among the study’s data, Fipe previewed the November result. It is estimated that the average wage increase will be 7.3%. Thus, 62.8% of the negotiations should be higher than inflation.

In addition, as of the closing of the newsletter, 43 widgets have been added to calculate the preview. Therefore, raw results may change with other aggregated information. For the October base date, inflation should remain at 6.5%.

From January to October, the sector with the highest average real adjustment was the jewelry industry, with an index of 0.76% above inflation. Shortly after, there is the private surveillance and security sector with a 0.26% real gain.
