G20 Labor and Employment Ministers’ Recommendations to G20 Leaders

As our Leaders noted when they met in Pittsburgh, the prompt and vigorous response of our governments to the economic crisis pulled the international economy back from the brink of collapse. The International Labor Organization (ILO) estimates that our efforts saved or created 21 million jobs worldwide in 2009-2010. Growth has started to return to many of our economies. However global unemployment is at historically high levels and in many of our countries unemployment rates are still rising. The ILO also estimates that half of the world’s three billion workers are employed in vulnerable forms of employment.
