How slow global employment growth undermines social justice

Submitted by pmassetti on
Body (31.01.2023) A new International Labour Organisation (ILO) report, World Employment and Social Outlook: Trends 2023 (WESO trends), has raised concerns about inequality and effects of the global economic slowdown on the quality of employment. It warned that if left unaddressed, the challenges facing the world of work might threaten progress towards social justice. The report said the current global economic slowdown is likely to force more workers to accept lower quality, poorly paid jobs, which lack job security and social protection, therefore accentuating inequalities exacerbated by the COVID-19 crisis.
