Niagara keeps pace with national unemployment numbers

Wages may be going up, but the number of people looking for work remains steady.

Wages in April went up 3.6% compared to a year ago according to a Statistics Canada report.

In Niagara, the unemployment rate kept on track with the national average, but that is up .2% from the month before.
