And therefore, as this line of reasoning goes, so should wages.

I am skeptical about this claim. Worker Productivity is not a way of measuring how hard workers labor. It simply means worker productivity, which is increased by labor saving devices and factory machines, has increased.

as most statistics it all depends on what is included and or excluded, perhaps some of the less 'productive' jobs have been sent over seas or removed all together. If it could be shown that workers are healthier and therefore missing less work due to injury and illness, then yes the work place would be more productive. Only technology really increases productivity which means you need less works and therefore are more productive. Automation doesn't call in sick, get pregnant , injured, called for jury duty etc etc. Often there are back up systems and down time is far less than a person.
