"It has been 30 years since we have seen jobs figures for young people as good as what we have seen in this last financial year, and I reckon that would be something for [US pop star] Taylor Swift to sing about". Global students are legally limited to 20 hours of employment per week, restricting their impact on the overall labour market.

Unemployment in June was 5.4 per cent, down from 5.6 per cent in May, the second lowest among all the states.

More details are in the June 2018 issue of Labour Force, Australia (cat.no. 6202.0).

In a report from the Business Insider Australia, Westpac economist Bill Evans said the Lending Index points suggests that growth will slow over the second half of the year, dropping to levels that will make it challenging to support wage growth and ease unemployment rate.

Male employment has yet to recover to pre-2014 levels, with the job market increasingly dominated by women.

"There are two real heroes, the businesses that create jobs and the people who went out there seeking them and got those jobs", said Mr Morrison.

With the participation rate - the number of people in work, or actively searching for work - ticking up, unemployment on a seasonally adjusted basis remained steady at 5.4 per cent.

A record 619,900 WA women have a job.

The central bank in Indonesia will wrap up its monetary policy meeting and then announce its decision on interest rates.
