Decent Work

IN BRIEF

The COVID-19 crisis has uncovered the huge decent work deficits that still prevail in 2020. In particular, the crisis highlights the vulnerability of millions of working people and the lack of social protection coverage. At the same time, many small businesses are operating in precarious situations and global supply chains are often too weak to be sustainable.
