2014 IMF and World Bank Spring Meetings

ILO Chief: It's time to put jobs and growth back at the heart of International policy making

While participating at the spring meetings of the 2014 IMF and World Bank, ILO's Director-General, Guy Ryder, pointed out that if pre-crisis trends in employment growth had continued, 62 million more women and men would have been working in 2013 when global unemployment reached 202 million. Unless growth picks up, the jobs gap will widen to 75 million by 2018.
