Well, this strikes me as tremendously good news. Though undoubtedly bad news for employers who have been able for so long to exploit workers, and the consumers who have enjoyed dirt cheap goods and services as a result. Dare i also say that this may well be a tangible benefit of Brexit?

It might be a benefit of Brexit. However, it will sit alongside the loss of exports to the EU. There are lots of reports of this due to the loss of the frictionless trade which the EU has. As we are out of the single market, a number of services exports will be lost. The lower exports might drive down the exchange value of the pound thus making imports more expensive.

[@JJking](/user/profile/JJking) It's been very relevant. I'm personally seeing (in a factory) people more concerned with conditions, namely hrs than wages. Especially when it comes to off shifts. Companies are gonna have to accommodate these people in some way if they want to be staffed.

Idea that wages going up is a new economic era is ridiculous in the very early years of the U.S. Alexis de Tocqueville wrote in democracy in America about the constant struggle between workers and employers when it comes to wages and in America wages have been suppressed for a very long time.The really stupid thing is people have been forecasting the demographic dip of Boomer retirements and a lack of younger workers driving up wages for decades.
