The head of the coronavirus pandemic spoke about the impact on the world of work International Labor Organization (ILO) describing it as “cataclysmic” and at the same time much worse than that of the financial crisis of 2008.
Director-General Guy Ryder, speaking at the start of the ILO cabinet meeting, warned of an unequal economic recovery after the pandemic, which is partly fueled by “huge disparities in vaccine distribution”.
«The impact has been catastrophic, cataclysmic“He said, as broadcast by the Athens News Agency. “As a whole, this represents a crisis in the world of work four times more serious than financial crisis of 2008-2009 “he added.
This United Nations agency announced last week that at least 220 million people are expected to remain unemployed worldwide this year and that pandemic-related job losses will not be covered before 2023.
“As we look more and more at the recovery process with some economies growing fast, very fast and jobs being created very fast now, I think we need to be aware of exactly how uneven the recovery will be if it continues in the current “orbit,” Ryder said.
