Wages, benefits down 

Wages, salaries and benefits earned by British Columbians fell 1.2 per cent (seasonally adjusted) in the second quarter. The drop in labour income followed and even larger decline (-1.8 per cent) at the beginning of the year, and was the first time that there have been back-to-back declines in workers' earnings in more than a decade. Ontario (-1.1 per cent) and Alberta (-0.4 per cent) were the only other regions where labour income fell in the second quarter. Nationally, wages, salaries and benefits shrank 0.5 per cent in the second quarter.
