Windsor unemployment rises in August

The economy dropped a net 51,600 jobs in August on a seasonally adjusted basis, Statistics Canada said Friday.

Windsor's rate is now tenth highest among 34 larger Canadian cities. Nationally, the jobless rate rose to six per cent in August from 5.8 per cent the month before. "The only consolation is that the weakness is in part-time jobs, full-time was up".

While the nation added 40,400 full-time positions, those gains were overtaken by the 92,000 part-time jobs lost last month.

Ontario experienced the biggest decrease of the provinces by far with a loss of 80,100 jobs - nearly all of which were part-time positions.

The picture was similar in B.C., which saw a three-tenths spike to 5.3 per cent unemployment in August. That is a sharp contrast to the 12.1 per cent unemployment seen in 2010.
