No “automatic link’ between work and human development

There is no “automatic link” between work and human development, according to a new UN report on the topic, released Monday.

The 2015 Human Development Report highlights that although work is vital, it is the quality of that work that matters most.

The report pays particularly attention to the 1.5 billion people in developing countries working in jobs that offer few rights, with virtually no social protections.
