With a record 6.7 million unfilled jobs in April, economists are optimistic that wage growth will accelerate later this year.
Automakers added 12,000 jobs in June, but adverse trade developments could deflate the gain. But the average was skewed downward in June because the job seekers were mainly those with only a high school education or less, who are generally paid lower wages, Barrera noted. The agency says more people were seeking job opportunities and that forced the rate up to 6%. Manufacturers added another 36,000 jobs last month on top of the 19,000 created in May. Instead of accelerating, as many had hoped, annual wage growth fell slightly, to 2.7 percent from 2.8 percent.
The report also says average hourly wage growth, which is closely watched by the Bank of Canada, remained strong last month at 3.6 - although it did come down from its nine-year high in May of 3.9 per cent.

But there is a matter about which the Chairman of the Fed, Jerome Powell, is beginning to express concern, the threat from an escalating tariff "war".
In May, the unemployment rate was 3.755% when extended out three decimal places, though this was officially rounded up to 3.8%, matching the lowest unemployment rate since April 2000.
