Average Hourly Earnings, January 2007 - October 2013 Print

November 8, 2013

Wage growth continues on roughly the same track, with the average hourly wage increasing at a 1.8 percent annual rate over the last three months. Interestingly, wages rose at a slightly faster 2.1 percent rate for production and non-supervisory workers continuing a pattern seen throughout this cycle. Since this category accounts for more than 80 percent of the workforce, it implies that generally more educated supervisory workers are seeing notably smaller wage gains.

November 7, 2013

October 22, 2013

According to the latest jobs report, the percentage of unemployment due to people voluntary quitting their jobs rose back to 8.8 percent, tying the high for the recovery hit in June. The duration measures were little changed, although the share of the unemployed who were out of work for more than 27 weeks fell 1.0 percentage point to 36.9 percent, the lowest since October of 2009. However, this is probably more attributable to shorter benefit duration than an improvement in job prospects. The number of people working part time continued to fall back, continuing the trend of the last three years.
