The impact of COVID-19 on employment and jobs

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered one of the worst jobs crises since the Great Depression. There is a real danger that the crisis will increase poverty and widen inequalities, with the impact felt for years to come. Countries now need to do everything they can to stop this jobs crisis from turning into a social crisis. Reconstructing a better and more resilient labour market is an essential investment in the future and in future generations.

 

This page features the latest OECD work on the impact of COVID-19 on employment and jobs, along with OECD recommendations and policy advice on how best to bridge to the recovery phase.
