Although the wage pyramid remained relatively stable overall between 2008 and 2022, there were major differences between economic sectors and employee profiles. A third of employees (33.6%) received bonuses and 12.1% earned a low wage. These are the initial findings of the Swiss Earnings Structure Survey 2022 conducted by the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).
