That's why a report on Newstalk will be music to your ears because 75% of Irish businesses say they expect to give their workers a pay rise in 2015.

The figures are from PwC's 'Irish Reward Trends Snapshot Survey,' and they say that the figure is up from 73% in 2014, and just 63% in 2013.

The amount of the pay rise is thought to be around 2.2%, so if you earn €25,000 a year, you'll get an increase of €550 on your annual salary.

It mightn't sound like much but that would pay for a decent summer holiday. Good news.
