Uneven Recovery from the Global Crisis in Developing Country Labor Markets [19 October 2011]


[full-text, 5 pages]


Labor market recovery from the financial crisis remains sluggish in parts of the developing world, with employment and

earnings growth far below their pre-crisis rates. The global crisis caused a sharp reduction in economic growth across the

developing world, but the impact on labor markets varied widely. Labor markets in East Asia largely escaped the crisis,

and employment indicators in Latin America recovered rapidly by 2010 from the previous year’s contraction. In contrast,

Europe and Central Asia continued to experience low earnings growth and high unemployment in 2010. More recent

trends in nine large developing countries show mixed earnings growth and weak job creation thus far in 2011.
