    Nope. If you look at the fine print, here’s what StatsCan says: "Unless otherwise stated, this release presents seasonally adjusted data, which facilitates comparisons by removing the effects of seasonal variations." Either way, the media outlet is still covering the data in contradictory ways. That’s my point.

      The whole thing about jobs is a joke in NL. Ask any recent MUN graduate what they are doing now, that is key. I was back there two years ago for the first time in a number of years and even in St. John's, things were not pretty. Optimism among youth seeking work was about the same when I lived there, ZERO. A quick look at internet job posts showed me the same old minumum wage BS that was there 20 years ago. Thank God I moved to western Canada where the real action is.

    I checked the stats. Thousands of part time jobs disappeared and almost the same number of full time jobs were created. So what really happened was Newfoundland and Labrador has 3800 more full time workers and the kids are back in school. You are basing your argument on the number of workers but ignoring whether they are full or part time. The whole article is based on nothing.
