Australia Job Ads Surge to 12-Year High in March
Job advertisements in Australia rose by 7.4 percent month-over-month to the highest in twelve years of 190,542 in March 2021, after an upwardly revised 8.8 percent jump a month earlier. This was the tenth straight month of gains in job ads, indicating the labor market's recovery can withstand the removal of some government's emergency support programs. Catherine Birch, ANZ senior economist, said the strength of ads suggested the ending of the government’s JobKeeper program would have a smaller impact than first feared. “We estimate that 100,000-150,000 people will lose employment, equivalent to 0.8-1.2% of the current workforce." “But we think net employment losses will be smaller, as growing labor demand elsewhere should mean many workers find a new job relatively quickly,” she added. “While we expect a temporary rise in the unemployment rate in Q2, we think it will resume its rapid downward trajectory in H2 2021.”
