Nosotros, los Representantes de la OIT y de la OCDE, invitamos a los Ministros de Trabajo y Empleo de los países del G20 a otorgar una mayor y renovada prioridad a las políticas de empleo que ayudarán a las economías a acelerar y sostener la recuperación, alcanzar niveles más altos de trabajo decente y salir de la trampa de la deuda.
Youth unemployment was 21.9% in the UK in March 2012, the second highest rate of G8 countries after Italy. This is close to its 20-year peak of 22.4% at the end of 2011.
The OECD area unemployment rate was stable at 8.2% in March 2012, the same level recorded since February 2011. This flatness is largely the result of increasing rates in some euro area countries being offset by declines in North America.
Young people continue to bear the brunt of the jobs crisis, with nearly 11 million 15 to 24 -year-olds out of work in OECD countries in early 2012. Youth unemployment in the OECD area in March 2012 was 17.1%, close to its November 2009 peak of 18.3%
The OECD area employment rate was 64.9% in the fourth quarter of 2011, according to new quarterly labour market statistics from the OECD.
The euro area unemployment rate rose by 0.1 percentage point (for the eighth consecutive month) to 10.8% in February, maintaining a record high since the start of the global financial crisis.
The OECD area unemployment rate was 8.2% in January 2012, having remained broadly unchanged throughout 2011.
Women are still under-represented in top corporate jobs, despite efforts in many countries to promote their participation on boards, according to new OECD data.
Men earn more than women, work less, and occupy more of the top jobs – but women live longer, are better educated and get to retire younger. How best to harness the talents of both sexes for better lives all round?
