20090206/制造业受重创,加拿大失业率飚升至7.2%

(星星生活记者捷克佳报导)加拿大联邦统计局今日(6日)公布2009年1月份失业率数据,由于经济形势低迷令加国失业率再度攀升,全加2009年1月份失业率升至7.2%。统计局表示,1月份全国失去12.9万份工作,为近30年来损失工作最多的月份,严重程度甚至超过上世纪80年代和90年代的经济衰退。

联邦统计局说,1月份全国失去12.9万份工作,绝大多数是全职工作,自去年10月以来,受经济不振的影响,全国已经有21.3万人失业。

据统计局公布的数据,除萨省的就业情况略有改善外,其余各省的失业率均上升。各省失业率的数据分别为(括号内为去年12月的数据):纽芬兰省14.3(13.7),爱德华王子岛11.9(11.7),新斯科萨8.8(8.2),纽宾士域8.7(8.6),魁北克7.7(7.3),安大略8.0(7.2),曼尼托巴4.6(4.3),萨斯卡奇旺4.1(4.2),阿尔伯塔4.4(4.2),卑诗6.1(5.3)。

统计局公布的数据远超过此前经济学家的预测,同时也令预测者们更加悲观。

BMO资本市场的一位高级经济师Sal Guatieri认为,今后将看到更多的工作流失,这一波只是裁员浪潮的开始,很可能会持续到今年上半年。

BMO经济学家预期,全加失业率的将会在年底突破至8%。为缓解经济不断恶化的态势,加拿大中央银行有望在三月份再度降息。

制造业受重创

制造业损失最为明显,在1月份制造业共损失10.1万人,这一数据是该行业录得的最高值。1月份的工作流失主要集中在人口密集的安省(流失3.6万人)、魁省(3万人)和卑诗省(1.8万人)。制造业的工作流失主要是汽车制造业,其他生产领域包括家具、电脑和电子器材、家电及零件、成衣制造业等。

在交通运输和仓储行业也有3万份工作的流失,其中大多是安省的卡车运输。同时,商业、建筑业和其他辅助服务行业也减少了2.2万份工作。

但是,也有一些行业的就业数据逆市而行,不降反增。健康护理和社会援助部门的就业水平仍持续强劲,1月份共录得3.1万个新增的工作。

安省为重灾区

安省在1月份共流失7.1万份工作,是三十多年来最为严重的单月流失。联邦统计局说,这些工作流失将安省的失业率由12月的7.2%推高至8.0%,这是自1997年11月以来的最高水平。

卑诗也失去3.5万份工作,失业率升至6.1%。魁北克省的就业减少了2.6万人,该省的失业率上升至7.7%。

    NEWS RELEASE -January’s record job loss numbers must serve as a wakeup call for Stephen Harper, Liberals say

    January’s record job loss numbers must serve as a wakeup call for Stephen Harper, Liberals say

    OTTAWA – January’s record job loss numbers paint a clear picture of just how severely the recession has affected Canadian families while the Conservatives were asleep at the switch, Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff said today.

    The 129,000 jobs lost in January are the largest monthly losses Canada has experienced since Statistics Canada began keeping its monthly records. It brings the total number of job losses in Canada to almost one quarter of a million in only the last three months.

    Mr. Ignatieff says the staggering numbers are precisely why he has put the government on probation with his Liberal budget amendment.

    “Last fall, Stephen Harper said that it was a good time to buy stocks, he said that there was no need to run a deficit and he said if we were going to have a recession it would have happened by now,” said Mr. Ignatieff. “We now know that as he was saying that, the market fell further, the Conservatives were in the red, and over 234,000 jobs were lost.”

    “This government has failed to plan and failed to protect Canadian jobs. It didn’t see the seriousness of the downturn and failed to bring in an immediate stimulus package when the urgency was clear,” he said.

    Liberal Finance Critic John McCallum urged the government to set aside partisanship and create jobs for all Canadians. As an example of recent behavior that can no longer be tolerated he pointed to the fact that in the past two years over 75 per cent of announced Building Canada Fund infrastructure money is being funneled directly to ridings that elected Conservatives.

    “The time for games is long over. The Prime Minister must get the money contained in this budget into the economy and not spend countless months pork barreling it directly to Conservative ridings,” said Mr. McCallum. “Canadians need a Prime Minster who is willing to work with all parties in the House of Commons, to create jobs in all regions of this country.

    “If the government had only acted when every other industrialized country was acting, investments would have already begun flowing to create and maintain jobs,” he said. “Instead the government, called an unnecessary election, brought forward a disastrous economic statement, caused a constitutional crisis and prorogued Parliament. The Conservative record shows just how out of touch they were with Canada’s precarious economic situation.”
