Vice President of Strategy and Marketing for Yoh, Jim Lanzalotto says "This data shows wages have started to level out a bit. Although wages were down in the first quarter, they've held steady in the second. We've also experienced a slight increase at the end of the second quarter which we'll be monitoring to see if it is the start of wages trending upwards again through the second half of the year. While we may not be seeing robust growth, we're also not experiencing the black hole others have predicted."
