The February jobs report shows a hint of wage growth in the economy — but only a hint.
Wages grew at a rate of 2% annually, versus an expectation of 2.2%. That’s just barely outpacing inflation, and is a deceleration from the January report, which showed 2.2% growth year-over-year.
Month-over-month, average hourly earnings rose by three cents, or 0.1%, to $US24.78.
