Okay. These numbers get slightly revised over time, but the Canadian economy lost about 430,000 jobs in the recession, from the peak to the trough. We recovered all of those jobs. In fact, we've recovered the same amount again on top of that, so we've added the same amount again.
In terms of the jobs, the overall numbers, about three-quarters of the jobs are in industries that pay above-average wages. There is about the same percentage point in the private sector, and about 85%, on current figures, are full-time jobs.
We've recovered them all. We've added the same amount in the full-time private sector, and on the whole in above-average wage sectors.
As you're well aware, and this is important from a monetary policy perspective, there continues to be slack in the labour market. There are more Canadians out there who want to work. As well, the recovery in hours worked has not been as strong as the recovery of jobs. It's better that people are in work, but in a number of industries I think Canadians and businesses, if the demand were there, would work more hours.
