    Compositional changes in employment weighed on wage growth in 2014. Factors of particular importance were the changes in the occupational mix leading to a concentration of employment gains in lower-paying jobs, as well as strong growth in self-employment, and in employment among younger and less-experienced workers. These changes are symptomatic of a new structural trend that the OBR would have to take into consideration.
