However, there was an increase in the labour force participation rate of 0.3 percentage points in May to 65.5 per cent.

The ABS reported the number of people employed increased by 38,900 to 11,537,900 in May.

The increase in employment was driven by increased full-time employment, up 46,100 people to 8,107,900, and was offset by a decrease in part-time employment, down 7,200 people to just under three and a half million.
