Abstract:Unemployment is on the rise in a majority of member countries, reminding us that the fight against high and persistent unemployment should remain at the top of the policy agenda. The deterioration of labour market conditions could affect disproportionately some groups, such as older workers, women, lone parents, people with disabilities, immigrants and disadvantaged youth. As stressed in this edition of the Employment Outlook, these groups are already under‐represented in employment, and mobilising them into jobs should now be a key policy objective for OECD countries. This requires a broader approach of reducing non‐employment, which embraces both unemployment and inactivity.
