    I assume this is the raw increase rather than real increase. If we adjust for a 2.2% core inflation we are effectively looking at a 0.72% real increase across the board.

    Sadly this seems very in-line with every other profession and doesn’t do much to value talent given the tight job market and alleged shortages in at least some areas. Assuming these values are representative I dare say the best move for most employees is to change employers, especially if the benefits start to erode the increase further. Using the averages, if benefits costs were to increase $55 a month the real increase would be completely wiped out (this doesn’t account for the tax treatment of any deduction).
