Average full time weekly pay within the Shropshire workplace

Average wages for people working in Shropshire (workplace wages) fell by £8.30 to £470.80 gross per week (-1.7%) in the year to April 2017, this is lower than the West Midlands average of £514.90. This is also lower than the average annual weekly wage for Great Britain which was up by £12.20 to £552.30; this means that the gap between national and local pay rates widened to £81.50.  This difference may be due to a higher percentage of our businesses being within sectors that tend to be lower paid; agriculture, care, hospitality and leisure.
