Economist: Although average hourly wages vary considerably between different regions of this country, in each region, the average hourly wage for full-time jobs increased last year. Paradoxically, however, in the country as a whole, the average hourly wage for full-time jobs decreased last year.

Which one of the following, if true of the economist's country, most helps to resolve the apparent paradox in the economist's statements?

.(A)  In the country as a whole, the average hourly wage for full-time jobs has decreased slightly for each of the last three years.

.(B)  Last year, to reduce costs, employers moved many full-time jobs from regions with relatively high hourly wages to regions where those jobs typically pay much less.

.(C)  The year before last, the unemployment rate reached a ten-year low; last year, however, the unemployment rate increased slightly.

.(D)  Last year, the rate at which the average hourly wage for full-time jobs increased varied considerably between different regions of
the country.

.(E)  Last year, hourly wages for most full-time jobs in the manufacturing sector declined while those for most full-time jobs in the service sector increased.
