As we reported earlier, the economic and labour crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic may increase global unemployment in the amount of 25 million workplaces. Such a prognosis was provided by the International Labour Organization (ILO).
The ILO noted that unemployment in the world may be lower in case of a coordinated political response at the international level.
