ABSTRACT

ILO Monitor: COVID-19 and the World of Work. Third Edition, Updated Estimates and Analysis   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Key Messages: "[1] The proportion of workers living in countries with recommended or required workplace closures has decreased from 81 to 68 per cent over the last two weeks, mainly driven by the lifting of workplace closures in China. The situation has worsened elsewhere. [2] Currently (as of 22 April 2020), 81 per cent of employers and 66 per cent of own-account workers live and work in countries affected by recommended or required workplace closures, with severe impacts on incomes and jobs. [...3] According to the ILO [International Labour Organisation] nowcasting model, global working hours declined in the first quarter of 2020 by an estimated 4.5 per cent (equivalent to approximately 130 million full-time jobs, assuming a 48-hour working week), compared to the pre-crisis situation (fourth quarter of 2019)."
