It seems BubbleChart has Frame->True, Axes ->False by default, so AxesLabel would have no effect. If you turn frames off and axes on, then AxesLabel works.

Caveat: In the example Bill Simpson pointed out, I had to adjust the plot range to get the y-axis included. I used PlotRangePadding -> Scaled[0.06]. If you use an non-symmetric padding, you get bubbles that are ellipses. PlotRange does not seem to have any effect, unless you wrap it all in Show, as in Show[BubbleChart[..], PlotRange->..]. Again, you tend to get elliptical bubbles.

My conclusion is that BubbleChart is a high-level function with moderate low-level control. So the best attitude is to like what Wolfram has given you. If you really want the look of axes, you can approximate it with
Frame -> {{True, False}, {True, False}},
FrameLabel -> {"x","y"}
