Assume u pay someone $100 and now you want to pay $150 so you need to arrange for that extra $50 right?
That extra $50 is called increase in wages.
Increased wages refers to $150 entirely. When u want to say you allocated
extra money you would like to talk about $50 increase
(B) is out for this reason.
(C) again refers to wages as a whole instead of the increase
(D) negotiated increases is awkward. It should be increases in wages negotiated
(E) again awkward increases approved from negotiating

A is the best choice.
