OECD frets over lost jobs
Text size Aa Aa

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development is worried about jobs.

It says even though unemployment in the world’s richest countries may have peaked there are still 17 million more people out of work in the OECD’s 31 member countries than at the start of the financial crisis.

It recommends government tax breaks and hiring subsidies for people out of work for more than a year.
