Five years may have passed since the global economic crisis but the costs of day to day living show no signs of easing. Figures recently compiled by the House of Commons library show that UK citizen's wages have dropped 5.5%. According to these statistics this is a bigger drop in wages than the likes of Portugal, Spain and Holland. It is the fourth worst decline in income in the European Union. This contrasts with the likes of Germany, whose workers wages actually increased by 2.7%.
In this particularly tough economic environment it is essential to people that they look after their money and savings as best they can.
