Wages increased by the most in more than 6 years as PM Shinzo Abe tried to convince corporations to shake off a 2-decade deflationary mindset. Sept. wages were up 0.5% vs. a year earlier, with total earnings rising for the 7th straight month. Earnings adjusted for inflation still fell, as they have for more than a year, but the labor market continues to tighten.
