British workers will suffer a bigger fall in living standards in 2023 than those in any other G7 nation, according to a new survey of financial professionals and retail investors.

UK inflation will outpace pay raises to a greater extent than in the other developed economies, with wages falling by 3% in real terms.

The cost of groceries and energy have risen more quickly than the current headline inflation rate of 10.1%, fanning the flames of mass strikes in what is being seen as the most widespread industrial action in a generation.
