Unemployment rates in Montreal, Quebec rise slightly in October

FSMNews

The industry has added 17,500 jobs since September 2016.

According to the October jobs report, the "travel arrangement and reservation services" sector, which the BLS counts under "professional and business services", lost approximately 1,000 jobs from September to October. That result was revised Friday to show a net gain of 18,000 jobs.

The strength in the jobs market provides further impetus for the Fed... The increase in jobs in August was raised to 208,000 from 169,000.

It's the first time the jobless rate has been above 6 per cent in London since June.

Windsor's unemployment rate is up almost two per cent compared to previous year, according to data released by Statistics Canada on Friday.

"Economists have been watching the wage numbers closely", NPR's Chris Arnold reports for our Newscast unit, "and hoping to see Americans getting more money in their pockets".

Among major Canadian cities, only Calgary and Edmonton had higher unemployment rates, at 8.3 and 8.2 per cent respectively.

On Friday, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported its Employment Situation Summary for October 2017-reporting that the nation's unemployment rate decreased by 0.1 percentage point to 4.1 percent, and the number of unemployed persons decreased by 281,000 to 6.5 million.

It defines that group of people: "Discouraged workers are persons not now looking for work because they believe no jobs are available for them".

The labour force participation rate also fell 0.4 points to 62.7 percent and the employment-to-population ratio shrank 0.2 points to 60.2 percent - suggesting the fall in unemployment may partly reflect a dip in the size of the workforce as well as job creation.
