The increase in labour costs is attributed to significant growth in both wages and salaries per hour worked, as well as non-wage costs per hour worked. Specifically, wages and salaries saw a 4.5% increase, while non-wage costs increased by 6.5% compared to the corresponding quarter of the previous year.
