That includes sustaining support for jobs, businesses and incomes,” ILO Director-General Guy Ryder said in a statement.In the second quarter alone, the revised estimate of global working time lost was 17.3%, equivalent to 495 million full-time jobs, against a previous estimate of 14% or 400 million jobs, the report said.In the third quarter, working-hour losses of 12.1% or equivalent to 345 million jobs were expected, it said.”Moreover, revised projections for the fourth quarter suggest a bleaker outlook than previously estimated,” it said.Working hours losses in the final quarter of 2020 are now projected to amount to 8.6%, equivalent to 245 million full-time jobs, against the same time a year ago, the ILO said.Topics : Income earned from work worldwide dropped by an estimated 10.7%, or $3.5 trillion, in the first nine months of 2020, compared to the same period a year ago, the International Labor Organization (ILO) said on Wednesday.The figure, which does not include income support provided by governments to compensate for workplace closures during the pandemic, is equal to 5.5% of global gross domestic product (GDP) for the first three quarters of 2019, it said.”Workplace closures continue to disrupt labor markets around the world, leading to working hour losses that are higher than previously estimated,” the ILO said in its sixth report on the effects of the pandemic on the world of work.last_img read more

first_imgThe line of Beau Taylor, Connor McLaughlin and Scott Swiston did much of the damage for the Saints Saturday, combining for five goals and 11 points to spark the Saints to a convincing 10-1 shellacking in Cheney, Wash.Friday, the Saints staked the Eagles to a 1-0 lead before roaring back to score seven straight to score a 7-1 victory in Castlegar.”We played a full 60 minute effort (Saturday) and it seemed like everything was working offensively,” said Saints head coach Jeff Dubois.”Beau Taylor went through a streak back in the fall where nothing was bouncing for him, but he’s been one of our best players so far in 2014. He along with Connor and Scott set the tone this weekend and everyone else jumped on board.” McLaughlin and Darnell Dyck — on a power-play — put Selkirk ahead by two by the end of the first period and the Saints piled on with four more from Taylor, Swiston, Cody Fidgett and Colin Minardi in the second. JR Strait scored Eastern’s lone goal on one of their eight opportunities with the man-advantage, but Selkirk continued to find the back of the net as the game wore on. Taylor completed his hat trick with back-to-back goals early in the third period before Markus McCrea and Thomas Hardy scored late. Saints captain Logan Proulx extended his season-long point streak to 17 games when he set up Taylor shorthanded with 13:29 remaining in the game. Chris Hurry picked up his second straight win in goal, turning aside 18 shots. Derek Moser and BJ Leach split time in the loss. “Chris has been outstanding over the past couple weekends,” said Dubois.”We haven’t been giving up a ton of shots, but he’ll go a few minutes without much action and then make a big save when we need him to. He’s made some great strides and really captured the confidence of his teammates.” Friday goal scorers included Colin Minardi, Connor McLaughlin, Stefan Gonzales, Beau Taylor, Scott Swiston, Logan Proulx and Connor Stephens. The Saints’ record now sits at 13-3-1, which puts the team one point back of first place SFU. Selkirk is off next weekend before hosting the University of Victoria on Saturday, February 8th at the Castlegar Recreation Complex. The Selkirk College Saints rang up 17 goals on Eastern Washington netminders en route to a sweep of two B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League games.last_img read more
