A Roy Morgan survey has found that 1.226 million Australians were unemployed in October, an increase of 38,000 over the same time in 2016. A further 1.108 million Australians were under-employed, down 138,000 on the same time in 2016. The number of Australians in employment in October totalled 11,767,000, an increase of 104,000 over the past year, with the increase largely due to a rise in full-time jobs. Roy Morgan Research executive chairman Gary Morgan says employment growth has eased in the second half of 2017, while he notes the end of car manufacturing in Australia in October will have a flow-on effect to several automotive parts manufacturers and suppliers.
