Mercado de trabalho agrava-se na China

By Ninian Carter

December 15, 2022 - O desemprego na China agrava-se, especialmente entre os trabalhadores migrantes vulneráveis, quando a economia enfrenta restrições da Covid.

Unemployment in China increased in November, with migrant workers taking the biggest hit, as its Covid-ravaged economy slumped.

The jobless rate for migrant workers increased to 6% in November, up from 5.5% the previous month.

The nationally surveyed jobless rate rose to 5.7% in November, the highest since May, when Shanghai was in lockdown.

As for China’s 31 major cities, the jobless rate was markedly higher at 6.7%.

Stress on the labour market is set to worsen in the months ahead after the government abandoned its Covid Zero strategy of trying to keeping infections under control – triggering a surge in cases.

Problems are likely to increase with expected widespread absenteeism as workers fall ill or stay home to avoid becoming infected.
