Mike, it seems to me that the time span may be too short. I'm not sure if London is more export oriented than Ontario or Canada, but if it is, you might get more insight from 2 full exchange rate cycles. 2004 won't do; likely need to go back to early 70s when jobs and fx were less coupled.

It does look bleak by your data, but peak bleak would include falling construction jobs. The rising trend makes me wonder who is building and who is buying. After all, if jobs are in decline, wages are likely to be falling as well.

The time span is too short. You have to go back to the movement of humans out of Africa.
