Wage numbers in the December jobs report reflect a growing labor skills gap, which is a "real, real issue" in the United States economy, an executive said on Friday.
"Wages are up, but it's in different areas," Tom Gimbel, president and CEO of Lasalle Network, told CNBC's ". "
The U.S. economy created 252,000 jobs in December to beat an expectation of 240,000, while the unemployment rate fell to 5.6 percent. Wages, though, fell by 5 cents an hour.
Gimbel believes the numbers show the widening space between wages in high-skill versus low-skill positions. Job growth has come in areas in which wage growth has proved weaker, said Michael Gapen, chief economist at Barclays U.S.
Overall, though, the jobs report didn't dampen hopes that the U.S. economy is recovering, Gapen said.
"This is more evidence that labor market conditions are very robust," he said.
The report "doesn't change the view" for the Federal Reserve on interest rate policy decisions, Gapen added. He still sees a "June liftoff" for rates.
Jeffrey Cleveland, chief economist at Payden and Rygel, agreed that the Fed change its view based on the report. The Fed can "hit copy and paste" on its last Federal Open Market Committee statement and wait to see what happens to inflation, he said.
