Australia’s strong labor market rebound signals the economy is rapidly recovering as the country lifts coronavirus restrictions, Treasurer Josh Frydenberg said Friday.
The country added a record 366,100 jobs in November, eclipsing market forecasts for a 200,000 rebound, data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics showed Thursday.
Frydenberg underscored the recovery has been broad, with jobs added across a range of sectors. The jobless rate dropped to 4.6%, from 5.2% in October, well under forecasts of 5.0%.
