Unemployment rate in Windsor increases

The unemployment rate held firm last month at 5.8 per cent according to Statistics Canada

The U.S. economy added 196,000 jobs in March, while the unemployment rate remained unchanged at 3.8 percent, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said on Friday.

March numbers for MA and for towns and cities will not be available for a few more weeks.

This was the lowest unemployment rate in MA in 15 years. The country's jobless rate was unchanged at 5.8 per cent.

The number of employee positions in the private sector fell by 17,300 last month, while public-employee jobs increased by 4,200 and self-employed occupations rose by 6,000.

Compared with a year earlier, the numbers showed that Canada added 331,600 jobs for an increase of 1.8 per cent. The increases in employment rates for prime-age men, and especially among younger men, indicate that we have not yet hit any limits on labor force expansion. In 2018, employment growth in the United States averaged 223,000 per month. The economy added 49,000 health care jobs last month for a total of 398,000 over the last 12 months.

The Canadian economy unexpectedly shed jobs in April on the back of a drop in part-time positions, bolstering bets that the Bank of Canada will hold interest rates steady when its policymakers meet later this month.

People working part time, but who are looking for full time work, also remained stable last month at 4.5 million.

Employment in other major industries, including mining, wholesale trade, retail trade, transportation and warehousing, information technology, financial services, and government showed little change over the month.
