The effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on young workers’ employment, incomes, training, and social protection have been catastrophic. Even before the pandemic, young workers were already in a precarious position. The pandemic, and young workers’ existing vulnerabilities highlight the need for governments and policymakers to take action on decent work for young workers so that they don’t suffer long-lasting consequences from the pandemic. Youth employment must be front and centre in Covid-19 recovery plans.
