Abstract

Labor productivity has been the basis for one on one economic wage growth in all developed
countries. The paper is analyzing the prospect of measures taken by the European 13 countries that became
EU members in 2004, 2007 and 2013 regarding compensation of employees per hour worked expressed
in EUR, the evolution of the real labor productivity per hour worked index where 2010=100%
and the impact on inflation expressed in percentage change. For this approach, Eurostat database was
consulted and for a better understanding, the study was done for the period of time starting from 2004
for Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia, and
Slovenia, from 2007 for Bulgaria and Romania, and from 2013 Croatia. Based on the analysis results,
should pinpoint conclusions regarding the evolution of the indicators and the impact that they had on
price stability.
