Cost of Living

Cost of Living Increases May Not be in Your Future

Annual compensation increases sometimes have been justified by calling them Cost of Living (COL) adjustments, but this rationale is even less relevant to setting appropriate wage levels than in the past. Employees often expect salary increases at least equal to the “cost of living” increase as measured by the federal government’s Consumer Price Index (CPI).
