Windsor's Jobless Rate Increases

Statistics Canada is reporting the loss of 1,100 jobs last month -- a decline so small the agency did not consider it statistically significant.

The unemployment rate held steady at 5.8% for a third-straight month.

Wage growth hit its highest level in nearly six years, with a 3.6% increase over 2017.

In Windsor, the rate is up slightly from 5.2% in March to 5.5% in April.
