Wages in Greater Boston are rising faster than anywhere in the country
Boston Business Journal - 05/05/2015
Another factor in rising wages may be that high-tech employers are more prone to hire talent away from competitors than to train new employees — and hiring people who already have good jobs often requires paying a premium to get them.
Economist Alan Clayton-Matthews, head of the Dukakis Center at Northeastern University, also cited globalization as a reason wages in Boston would rise faster than those nationwide.
“Any metro area that has a labor force with sectors in global demand is doing well,” he said. “There is a high demand for knowledge-based workers across the globe.”
