Ready for a salary raise in 2016?
Increasing Wages is One of the Key Indicators of
a Good Economy
Increasing wages is usually associated with increasing inflation (see the BFM newsletter about inflation), indicating a growing economy.
With improving economic conditions in the U.S., we are seeing an upward trend in expectations of higher wages. The job market has improved considerably and the number of people available per job opening is back to pre-crisis level. The number of companies planning to raise wages has also gone up, and all these charts indicate that we might be seeing higher wages going into the future.
What does this mean for your portfolio?
If you believe inflation will come back, you may want to protect your portfolio since your purchasing power will decrease overtime since prices will go up. If you want to learn more about inflation, feel free to read our past research at: http://tinyurl.com/BFM-Inflation
