REAL EARNINGS * JUNE 2014

All employees

Real average hourly earnings for all employees was unchanged from May to June, seasonally adjusted, 
the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. This result stems from a 0.2 percent increase in the 
average hourly earnings being offset by a 0.3 percent increase in the Consumer Price Index for All Urban 
Consumers (CPI-U).

Real average weekly earnings was unchanged over the month due to both real average hourly earnings 
and the average workweek being unchanged.

Real average hourly earnings declined 0.1 percent, seasonally adjusted, from June 2013 to June 2014. 
The decrease in real average hourly earnings, combined with an unchanged average workweek, resulted 
in a 0.1 percent decline in real average weekly earnings over this period.


Production and nonsupervisory employees

Real average hourly earnings for production and nonsupervisory employees declined 0.1 percent from 
May to June, seasonally adjusted. This result stems from a 0.2 percent increase in average hourly earnings 
being more than offset by a 0.3 percent increase in the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners 
and Clerical Workers (CPI-W).

Real average weekly earnings declined 0.1 over the month due to the decrease in real average hourly 
earnings combined with an unchanged average workweek.

Real average hourly earnings rose 0.2 percent, seasonally adjusted, from June 2013 to June 2014. The 
increase in real average hourly earnings, combined with an unchanged average workweek, resulted in a 
0.2 percent increase in real average weekly earnings over this period.
