An Increase in Windsor's Unemployment Rate

An increase in Windsor's unemployment rate.

It moved to 5.7% in May compared to 5.6% in April.

Statistics Canada says the national economy added 27,700 jobs in May, while the unemployment rate fell to its lowest level since comparable data become available in 1976.

Canada's unemployment rate fell to 5.4% compared with 5.7% in April as the number of people looking for work fell sharply.

The better-than-expected increase in the number of jobs follows a record 106,500 jobs that were added in April.

The increase in jobs was made up entirely of full-time employment as there was no change in the number of part-time jobs.
