Economy Adds 97,000 Full-Time Jobs in Australia

The job market in Australia has a very positive outlook and is continuing to improve. No state or territory had a decrease in the number of people employed in October 2020. 

According to Sarah Hunter, the chief economist at BIS Oxford Economics, if the pandemic remains under control, the recovery should stay strong going into 2021. The increase in Australian jobs show employment in October was only 1.7 percent under the March numbers. This reflects a large group of workers who had been temporarily unemployed and are returning to the workforce.


The increase in jobs was accompanied by an increase in hours worked as well. In Victoria, hours worked rose by 5.6 percent.
