The covid recovery has hurt young people more than any other age group, with an estimated 73 million youths unemployed in 2022, six million more than in 2019, a new report by the International Labour Organization has revealed.

The “Global Employment Trends for Youth 2022” report looked at the impact of the pandemic on those aged between 15 and 24 years old and their labour market prospects during the recovery period and into the future.
