Wage Inflation: The Stats and the Underlying Implications | Mish’s Market Minute

Whereas the UAW strike continues, and the talk on how a lot it issues within the scheme of issues rages on, different wage tendencies are rising.

Amazon (AZMN) at present introduced it should rent about 250,000 logistics personnel for the vacation season at a wage of $20.50 per hour. The Amazon chart reveals a retracement to the July 6-motnh calendar vary excessive and the 50-DMA. Nevertheless, there’s a bearish divergence on our Actual Movement (momentum) indicator. This might imply value is weak to interrupt below the important thing help ranges or 135.30. It may additionally imply that if costs enhance from right here, momentum may enhance.

Nonetheless, this stays to be seen after at present’s announcement that might hit the underside line for Amazon, particularly if the vacation season will not be all that.

After 40 years of wages not maintaining with inflation or the price of residing, we began pondering: Is the subsequent wave of hyperinflation rising from wages, and never essentially simply from excessive meals and power costs?

To clarify:

Situation 1. Increasingly more employees demand greater pay, firms are pressured to conform. These firms should scale back their manufacturing thereby tightening provide. Demand stays sturdy with the added wages and stronger labor market; therefore, the price of items goes up.

Situation 2. Wages soften, as seen within the chart, since March 2023 and inflation doesn’t come down rather more (in actual fact it’s rising). Staff don’t get a better earnings. Staff start to depart their jobs, or quietly stop. Corporations should scale back their manufacturing, thereby tightening provide. Demand continues to outstrip provide (though not as a lot as in state of affairs 1) with the shortage of wage development; therefore the price of items goes up anyhow as a result of social unrest. Social unrest tends to create hoarding.

This can be a concept, in fact. This concept, although, relies on the pattern which began in the summertime and is constant into the autumn — demand for greater pay!
