UN labour agency chief predicts slow recovery to pre-pandemic jobs levels
The head of the UN labour agency warns that a recovery in the international labour market is still a long way off, with a lot of uncertainty for workers and businesses, hoping for the economy to bounce back.
Guy Ryder, the Director-General of the International Labour Organization (ILO), spoke to UN News at the launch of the agency’s World Employment and Social Outlook Trends (WESO) 2022 report, which offers gloomy projections of increased unemployment, and widening inequality between developed and developing countries.
Conor Lennon from UN News asked Mr. Ryder why the estimate is so dramatically different from the previous report, released in June of last year.
