A recent survey of large enterprises and multinational corporations in the city has found that employees’ salaries in Hong Kong are projected to rise 4.3 percent in the coming year, slightly higher than the 4 percent increase of 2015.

Meanwhile, the financial sector is projected to get a 4.8 percent boost.

HR consultants have suggested that although the SAR’s economy has suffered in recent months, manpower is still in demand in a tense labor market, and employers will have to pay to retain their good workers.

Our take: Hear that, bosses? Pay us more! Please!
