English to Portuguese: Economic upturn in US fails to revive job market Detailed field: Economics
Source text - English Economic upturn in US fails to revive job market
The US economy continues to shed jobs even as its recovery has gathered strength, according to figures released yesterday.
The US jobs decline surprised both independent economists and officials from the Bush administration, who had expected a small rise. Long-term interest rates and the dollar both fell after the figures were released.
The data underline how the US recovery is marked by a productivity-driven rise in output that is inducing little response from a becalmed labour market.
The administration's critics said the data were evidence of the failure of the White House's economic strategy, which has centred on tax cuts intended to increase investment and consumption and boost the stock market.
The fall in employment was spread across many sectors of the economy. The now-familiar falls in manufacturing, which has lost nearly 16 per cent of its jobs since mid-2000, were joined by an unexpected 67,000 slide in service-sector jobs.
Translation - Portuguese Melhoria da economia norte-americana incapaz de animar o mercado de trabalho
Apesar de registar uma recuperação, a economia norte-americana continua a reduzir postos de trabalho, de acordo com notícias publicadas ontem.
O declínio no emprego norte-americano surpreendeu tanto os economistas independentes como os responsáveis da administração Bush, que esperavam um pequeno aumento. Tanto as taxas de juro a longo prazo como o dólar caíram após a divulgação dos números.
Os números realçam o facto de a recuperação norte-americana se caracterizar por uma subida na produção devido ao aumento na productividade, que está a causar uma resposta fraca por parte de um mercado de trabalho estagnado.
Os críticos da administração Bush afirmaram que os números evidenciam o fracasso da estratégia económica da Casa Branca, que se centrou em cortes fiscais a fim de encorajar o investimento e o consumo e impulsionar a bolsa de valores.
A quebra no emprego atingiu vários sectores da economia. As agora recorrentes quebras na indústria transformadora, que perdeu quase 16% dos seus postos de trabalho desde meados do ano 2000, fizeram-se acompanhar de um declínio inesperado de 67.000 postos de trabalho no sector dos serviços.
