The director-general of the International Labour Organization (ILO), Guy Ryder, has welcomed commitments made by the G20 ministers to tackle the global jobs crisis, at the close of the Labour and Employment Ministerial Meeting (LEMM), in Melbourne, Australia.
“The G20 Ministers’ have made ambitious but essential pledges to work to create more and better jobs, which can drive economic recovery and stave off the risk of a slide into a slow growth trap”, Mr Ryder said.
“Employment and Labour Ministers must now work closely with Finance Ministers and other parts of governments to make sure that measures to improve job opportunities and wages are supported by macroeconomic and financial policies as well”.
In their closing declaration, the Ministers said there was a need to generate hundreds of millions of decent jobs that can lift working families out of poverty and drive sustainable development. “Promoting and creating quality jobs, and tackling the economic and social consequences of unemployment, underemployment, inequality and social exclusion, are priorities for all our economies,” the Declaration states.
“Reducing youth unemployment, stimulating demand, and raising female participation and employment, in particular command a high priority”, it says.
