Wages gain 2% in 12 months to May

By Steve Randall
There was virtually no change in the average weekly wage of non-farm payroll workers in May from the month before but the $972 figure was 2% above that of 12 months earlier.

Statistics Canada reported Thursday that earnings were higher in 7 of the 10 largest industrial sectors, led by professional, scientific and technical services. Earnings declined in retail trade and were little changed in manufacturing and construction.
