Heterogeneity in Wage Inflation Dynamics across Industries The model allows us to identify industries where wage inflation exhibits strong, medium, and weak cyclicality. Wage inflation is a type of cost inflation, which arises precisely when there are increases in the wage factor and such increases are transferred directly to the price of what is produced.

As this form of inflation originates through the elevation of one of the components of the. Summary: Wage inflation is an increase in nominal wages, meaning workers receive higher pay.

Wage inflation tends to cause price inflation and higher growth. The impact of wage inflation depends on whether it is a real increase (higher than inflation) or just nominal increase (same wage increase as inflation).
