According to the International Labor Organization (ILO) of the United Nations labor unit in the midst of the Corona crisis, about 30.5 million people may lose their full-time jobs in just three months from April to June. The organization has once again raised the forecast of jobs due to coronavirus epidemic. The organization had said in the previous forecast that 19.5 crore full-time jobs with an average of 48 hours of work per week in the June quarter could be lost due to this epidemic.
In its statement, the organization said that in order to control the epidemic, it has had to change the estimate due to the increase of lockdown worldwide. The organization said that due to this epidemic, 1.6 billion workers in the informal sector have been threatened with livelihood because their means of livelihood have been stopped due to the epidemic. It is about half of the world's 3.3 billion workforce.
The agency of the United Nations said that more than 43 crore enterprises are more vulnerable in the areas of serious crisis like retail and manufacturing risk. According to the ILO, there has been a 60% drop in the income of workers in the first month due to the lockdown. According to the ILO, a decline of over 80% has been observed in Africa and the Americas, 70% in Europe and Central Asia, and 21.6% in Asia and the Pacific.
