Multiple crises hurt global labour market in Q1 of 2022: ILO

“After significant gains during the last quarter of 2021, the number of hours worked globally dropped in the first quarter of 2022 to 3.8% below the pre-crisis benchmark which was the fourth quarter of 2019. This is equivalent to a deficit of 112 million full-time jobs,” the ILO said in the 9th edition of the World of Work, released on Monday.
