2014 G20 Jobs and Employment Recommendations

In order to promote domestic resource mobilization, the G8/G20 Advocacy Alliance -- with 50 NGO, union and think tank members -- urges the G20 to implement the following job and employment recommendations at the Brisbane Summit.

  1. G20 countries should launch comprehensive macroeconomic strategies to reduce unemployment including youth unemployment. 
  2. G20 nations should establish and implement labor market policies that ensure inclusive job creation tailored to vulneratble groups, including youth, women, elderly, and disabled. 
  3. G20 members should set decent wage levels, promote fair and effective tax and benefit systems, and agree to establish a global social protection floor. 
  4. The G20 should continue the joint Labor and Finance Ministers meetings, which were initiated in Moscow in July 2013.
