This month, our newsletter is dedicated to formal and informal workers worldwide, who have probably faced the most adverse International Workers´ Day of their lives. Due to the COVID-19 health crisis, companies are forced into massive layoffs and wage reductions, and informal workers have seen their business drop dramatically in the past few months. However, this urgent situation has also brought to the fore social protection solutions that can persist even after the pandemic is over to improve working and living conditions everywhere.
Below you can find the usual sections of our monthly newsletter, as well as a mapping of social protection measures being implemented all around the world to respond to the emergency.
