Twenty-seven percent of Lithuanians say they have received a pay rise in recent months, with 23.4 percent of the population having had their salaries increased by up to 10 percent, according to an opinion poll conducted by Spinter Tyrimai for Delfi.lt.

Spinter Tyrimai CEO Ignas Zokas says that wages have risen for a considerable part of the population.

"Several segments can be singled out: these are tech-savvy, younger professionals with a higher education degree," Zokas said.

"Meanwhile, the lowest incomes rise at the slowest pace, because people apparently do jobs that require less skill and are outside of the major cities," he added.

Some 39.2 percent of those polled said their incomes had not changed. Another 30.4 percent they were not in employment and 3.3 percent said their wages had decreased.

Average gross monthly wages in Lithuania's economy, excluding sole proprietorships, rose by 10.5 percent in the second quarter of 2018 compared with a year ago to reach 926.7 euros, according to the latest figures from Statistics Lithuania.

Average net monthly wages grew by 9.5 percent year-on-year to 721.8 euros.
