Nissan to raise wages for a fifth year

Employee morale needs a boost after inspection scandal

A Nissan plant in Mexico.

TOKYO -- Nissan Motor plans to increase monthly base pay for the fifth year in a row to lift employee morale in light of a vehicle inspection scandal and worsening U.S. earnings.

Labor is seeking a 3,000 yen ($28.32) increase in spring wage negotiations. The focus will be on whether the two sides can agree on a raise that is in line with last year's 1,500 yen.
