The Income Gap Increases in Norway

Norwegian daily, Dagsavisen features the report of the OECD. Accordingly, the low-income group has the lowest earning in Norway with an average wage growth of 1.4 percent per year since the mid-1980s. Similarly, those with the highest salaries received 2.3 percent increase in salary per year.

The report also focuses on the free flow across borders in the EU and the EEA, which has led more foreign workers to find themselves in far worse paid jobs than the Norwegians. In parallel with this, the people who earn well benefited from the positive effects of having a high income. They have been able to save more, and thus had high income.
