Employment Monitor Issue 9: Post-pandemic Unemployment

Posted on Monday, 24 May 2021

Employment Monitor is a briefing from Social Justice Ireland examining Ireland’s employment situation, including employment numbers, significant labour market trends, and other aspects of the macroeconomy. The purpose is to highlight selected trends and make recommendations with a focus on the policy goals of increasing employment, providing better working conditions, and creating a more just economic model and a fairer society.

In this issue we look at the impact of Covid-19 on employment in Ireland and, for those who do not expect to return to their previous job post-pandemic, the impact on unemployment in the coming years.

You can also listen to members of the Social Justice Ireland team discussing the monitor, breaking down the issues and the policies that need to be implemented now to avoid an unemployment crisis.
