Thomas jobless rate jumps to 6.3% in October

FSMNews

Windsor's unemployment rate is up almost two per cent compared to past year, according to data released by Statistics Canada on Friday. The industry has added 17,500 jobs since September 2016. The consensus call among traders was for a 15,000-job advance, according to economists at Royal Bank of Canada.

In terms of wages, federal economists say that the average hourly earnings for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls - which had risen by 12 cents in September - dropped by 1 cent to $26.53.

The robust employment report comes as growth slows in Canada after a stellar 12-month run that positioned Canada as the top-performing economy among the Group of Seven.

Offsetting those gains, the wholesale and retail trade sector lost 35,900 positions.

U.S. job growth accelerated last month after hurricane-related disruptions hurt employment in September, but there were signs that labour market momentum was slowing as annual wage gains sharply retreated. Manitoba added 4,000 jobs and Newfoundland and Labrador rose by 3,400.

Compared with a year ago, employment was up by 308,100 jobs as the number of full-time jobs increased by 396,800 and the number of part-time positions fell by 88,700.

The sharp moderation in job growth in September was blamed on hurricanes Harvey and Irma, which devastated parts of Texas and Florida in late August and early September, leaving workers, mostly in lower-paying industries such as leisure and hospitality, temporarily unemployed.

The data for September also turned out not be as bad as initially reported, with 18,000 new jobs created, rather than a loss of 33,000 positions, the first contraction in almost seven years. Prices of exports fell 0.6 per cent, while volumes grew 0.3 per cent.
