Wage inequality: Flight engineers among top earners in Wales
The pay gap between rich and poor is the narrowest in Wales than anywhere else in the UK, according to the Office of National Statistics.
The highest paid 1% of Welsh workers earn on average £41.20 an hour, seven times the wage of the lowest paid Welsh workers on £5.91 an hour.
Across the UK, the richest employees earn 10 times more than the poorest.
The inequality gap in Wales has narrowed since 1998, when the highest paid earned nine times as much as the lowest.
Aircraft engineers top the list as highest paid workers in Wales, earning on average more than £44 an hour.
