Furthermore, he mentioned that the official data from Social Security up to March 2022 shows that the number of employees in Nevis grew by 2.9%, and the number of jobs grew by 4.9%.
During that same period, gross wages grew by a significant 7.3%, and wages per employee grew by 4.3%, while wages per job grew by 2.4%, as per the data shared by Premier Brantley.
