HOUSTON, Texas -If you've been hoping for a raise, you may want to take a look at these numbers.

A report from the International Labor Office says average monthly wages in 2013 went up just 2 percent.

Apparently, most of that was because of places like China.

Without Chinese workers, that number would look more like 1.1 percent.

But on the upside -- the U.S. economy is on its way to having the best year for job growth since 1999.

321,000 jobs were created in November, which is 91,000 more than what economists predicted.
