Boosting the creation of decent jobs in quality public services and the care economy helps improve societies’ resilience against crises

Jobs, jobs and jobs! This is what the world needs to overcome the pandemic’s unprecedented levels of job destruction and livelihood loss. In 2020, COVID-19 wiped out almost 500 million jobs. Recovering from this devastation and building resilience will require massive job creation in essential services of the care economy - health, education, childcare, aged care and disability support. This will boost the economy and create decent work opportunities in services that are labour intensive and employ predominantly women and migrant workers

Investing in decent and sustainable jobs in quality public services and the care economy is part of the solution to recover from this crisis and to build resilience against future ones!
