Labor costs had been expected been expected to jump by 2.0 percent compared to the 1.6 percent slump that had been reported for the previous quarter.

The notable increase in unit labor costs came as hourly compensation shot up by 4.8 percent in the second quarter after skyrocketing by a revised 9.8 percent in the first quarter.

Real hourly compensation, which takes changes in consumer prices into account, climbed by 1.8 percent in the second quarter after surging up by a revised 8.3 percent in the previous quarter.
