COVID-19: 1 in 6 youths globally lost jobs – International Labour Organisation

The coronavirus pandemic has cost a sixth of the world’s young labour force their jobs.

This was contained in the report of a survey by the International Labour Organisation (ILO).

Geneva-based ILO found that the crisis is affecting young people’s chances of entering the labour market.


“That leads us to be extremely concerned for the welfare of young people,” DPA quoted ILO Director-General, Guy Ryder as saying in an online news conference.

Ryder warned of a “lockdown generation” that could face lower wages and higher unemployment for years to come.

No fewer than 11,000 respondents between the ages of 18 and 29 took part in the survey.

The UN says global youth unemployment before COVID-19 stood at 13.6 percent.
