The ILO on Care Work and Care Workers
On wages, working conditions and future shortages in paid care employment.
The new International Labour Organization report on care work and care workers is a real milestone.
It consolidates and compares data of time devoted to care time for all countries (about 80!) for which time-use survey data are available.
It includes discussion of wages, working conditions and future shortages in paid care employment. It outlines an ambitious policy agenda, insisting that a “high road to care work” is within our reach.
