The jobless rate continued to climb in January but Australia’s job market remains surprisingly resilient.
Data released by the ABS yesterday showed the national unemployment figure rose to 4.8 per cent in January – the highest rate since June 2006.

A rise in the size of the workforce, which rose by 0.1 per cent, appeared to be the real reason behind the increase.
The federal government has forecast the percentage of unemployed Australians to rise to 7 per cent by mid 2010.
