ILO Predicts Fewer Jobs, Worldwide Unrest

ILO Predicts Fewer Jobs, Worldwide Unrest

The International Labour Organization (ILO) released its “World of Work Report 2011” in which the organization predicts a growing global jobs recession and more social unrest.

According to information in the report, slow economic recovery has had a dramatic impact on labor markets, and current trends indicate that it will take at least five years to bring global employment levels to where they were before the financial crisis.

Of the 80 million jobs that the report says would need to be created in two years to bring global employment back to pre-crises levels, only half will become a reality.

The report blames the stifled global job growth on three issues: companies weakened by the recession, lack of international policy coordination to facilitate economic recovery and the unwillingness of many companies to take risky expansion measures in the current economy.

One result of the extremely slow economic recovery, the study says, will be increases in instances of worldwide social unrest because of the lack of jobs and anger over perceptions that the burden of the crisis is not being shared fairly.

    Don’t know if should laugh or cry.

    “companies weakened by the recession” We took from the successful and gave to the failing. What did you expect? Instead of letting the weak die from their bad choices, you reinforced those bad choices. And those that did well are now hurt too…. Spread the pain policy. What is that quote? Misery loves company?

    “lack of international policy coordination to facilitate economic recovery” The problem is not the lack of coordination. The problem is that they are doing this in the first place, but all too many have bought into Keynesian economics completely. They truly believe this is the way to fix the economy. This is so pervasive that even many conservatives believe in some form of Keynesian economics.

    “the unwillingness of many companies to take risky expansion measures in the current economy.” And you call the successful greedy capitalists, vilify them, tax them, and if they are successful you take their money and give it to their competitors who are failing or to organizations that sucking up money and bleeding the economy out. These people who became successful are not as dumb as we seem to think they are. Did you know that the ability to handle and manage money is actually a different sort of intelligence that most of us don’t develop? It is something nearly all of us have the potential to do, but very few actually learn this. Most of us buy into the propaganda about money such that we actually refuse to unlearn what we’ve learned. I don’t see Keynesian economics going away until after it destroys the world, and even then it won’t really go away but it just might finally be tarnished enough that some of the populace will look elsewhere….

    International Labour Organization, (ILO), hey? Withhout even researching them I an predict what I’ll find if I do so; another socialist/communist/Marxist front group masquerading as a public interest organization.

    • JimRed

      That typo means “I can predict”, of course.

    • Walt

      Hey Jim,I took the time to read the 159 page report. Have you?

      There is a lot of charts and information in the report that you might find interesting to consider. If you find that reading academic reports is a bit boring, I would suggest you at least read the report on food shortages, starting on page 76 of the report. After reading the report, I found no hint of any socialist/communist/marxist agenda in the report…just hard cold facts, charts and statistics.

      Stop looking for commies under every rock and get educated.

    • Mary

      Looks like the entire world is going south. I used to laugh instead of cry but with the situation here I need a bottle of wine. I have a militar cousin who told in the 80′s that the communists will come back stronger and that we should fight them to death because if they win we’re dead. That I should remember and never forget that the best communist is the dead one. I called him extremist. Now I understand him and his job in Central America. The communist has no mother no God. Everyting came to my mind with the fleabagers. People says they are idiots but they are not just idiots they are useful idiots. I was sure my eyes will never see that in this country. Sure I was wrong.

  • Raggs

    You are blaming the WRONG source for the economicial collapse.

    oblama…. IS THE CAUSE…

    NUF SAID!

    Why?… It is his fundamental transformation of America.
    His Marxist agenda of wealth redistribution, his unconstitutional regulations, his illegal health-care law, his illegal investment ( via tax dollars ) into the Global marxist alarmist “green energy” SCAMOIDS.. His illegal selling of firearms to Mexico, I can go on for hours but you get the picture….

    • CJ

      One man, in under three years couldn’t be the cause, but he did accelerate the decline for the US. The US has been on the decline for almost 100 years, a little at a time. But like the snowball, it starts out small and grows bigger as it goes, and moves faster. The liberals insistance we “help” the world has been a catalist for the global mess. We must learn we can’t have progress without consequences. When one gains, there IS another who looses. It’s frequently called “sacrifice.”

      Raggs, this country started it’s decline when Reagan brought your much beloved trickle down theory into play and the repubs ran with it right to the bank. So how ‘s that working for ya? I bet your pay increased 235% during the last 20 yrs didn’t it? The repub party has always protected the elite in this country, now to the detriment of the entire world. You and your type are promoting the New World Order, by allowing a few rich elitists to control the world, with the rest of the worlds population struggling as slaves to men such as the Koch brothers. Blame yourself for the income inequality in this country.

      • http://naver samurai

        Reagan, baaaaa! Kock Brothers, baaaaa! The rich, baaaaa! Economic programs, baaaaa! Can’t you do anything but bash conservatives and those on the right? I see you still don’t believe in citing sources. SSDD, eh moron? FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        P.S. My wife and I were better off financially under Reagan, Bush1, and Bush 2, then we ever were under Clinton or Obama bin Laden. The first 4 of them I was in the military.

          You are a liar. You said you and your phoney wife were better off under Ronald Reagan.You and your wife married when Carter was president?You said you were wounded twice in Iraq?There is a flaw in what you are saying,
          You would have to be in your fifties,you are not only a liar,but a slap in the faces of the young men and women whom gave up their lives in the service of their country.You sir are a poor excuse for a human being.

          samurai, cut taxes, blah blah blah, the rich are job creators, ha ha, ha, deregulate, deregulate, deregulate, blah, oops didn’t that cause the banking crisis? Get government out of our lives, except when the conservatives want to dictate to women what to do with their bodies, blah, blah, they are trying to take our guns, blah, blah, the right’s talking points are utterly false and we have years of facts to prove it, what do you have other than God and Guns? Where are the jobs???? You tea partiers promised jobs, so where are they?? Too busy getting the national motto reaffirmed?? Ha Ha No more abortion, but also no more birth control…Oxy moronic thinking. I say let’s have all the conservative and repub women turn in their birth control and let’s see all those pregant bellies on your women, who are also falling into the poverty level. Do you honestly think that only dems are unemployed? You living in a alternate universe!! 14 million people have no jobs.

          Eyes,

          Washington Post: “The administration in 1984 secretly sold arms to Iran — which the United States considered a supporter of terrorism — to raise cash for Nicaraguan contra rebels, despite a congressional ban on support for the Latin American insurgency. An independent investigation concluded that the arms sales to Iran operations “were carried out with the knowledge of, among others, President Ronald Reagan [and] Vice President George Bush,” and that “large volumes of highly relevant, contemporaneously created documents were systematically and willfully withheld from investigators by several Reagan Administration officials.” . . . Lawrence E. Walsh, the independent counsel who ran the inquiry, said there was “no credible evidence” that Reagan broke the law, but he set the stage for the illegal activities of others. Impeachment, Walsh said, “certainly should have been considered.”

          His administration was responsible for numerous brutal actions in Latin America, including massacres in El Salvador and the war against Nicaragua.

          The claim that Reagan won the Cold War is pure rightwing propaganda. The Soviet Union had long been far weaker than many American leaders knew, or wished to acknowledge, thanks to CIA gross overestimates of its economy. The Soviet Union was brought down by a number of factors including the inherent weaknesses of dictatorship and ethnic divides that eventually forced its breakup.Progressive Review:

    Gee, these guys are really clever are’nt they? It does’nt take an educated soul to make these predictions. That begs the question; is there anything we can do about it, or have we become just like the government, a monstrous debating society at best hoping for a merit badge depending on who wins the debate. No action required, just theories and useless rhetoric over and over about our woes, which we are all fully aware of.Let us become serious now, identify where we went wrong and do something to fix the problem instead of just harping about it continually. That will take some guts and dedicated effort, something which I think is lacking in the present regime, who are basking on easy street right now with us as their slaves. Are the feds watching this post? I hope so.

  • CJM

    It is conducive to the survival and well-being of unions to maintain the current unemployment rate and prevent any new jobs development. If jobs are created to put people back to work sans the unions, then the unions will have no platform for their existance. Does the organized union groups not understand that the people are well aware of their shenanigans to keep this current economic crisis in effect so as to protect themselves? BUST THE UNIONS AND BAN THEM FOREVER; THEY HAVE OUTLIVED THEIR USEFULNESS.

    • Raggs

      Yup ~ people are much easier to control when they are hungry and that is the democratic way of the unions and this administration…

      • eddie47d

        Union jobs are good jobs and few would go hungry except for the Republicans who have destroyed unions and put them into the unemployment lines. Way to go Raggs! Your efforts are duly noted.

        • Raggs

          DAMM straight!!!! F a union!

          • eddie47d

            Like you Raggs- keeping workers down. Pay them low wages and they will accept it as normal so we can all be equally poor. The Elites feed off of low waged employees and you seem to be connected at the hip with them.

          • Raggs

            Oh come on now Ed… I know that you don’t believe that…
            Wages and benefits are earned they are not a given.
            The unions do not need to be in the business of “giving”..
            When you “give” via the government or the unions you are taking from someone else… It is a big difference… It is called SOCIALISM…

She has the choice of five different health plans, stock option, investment package with company match, 5 weeks vacation a year, all kinds of good benefits and not a union in sight!!!

          And this from Obama supporter Steve Jobs of Apple Computer:

          Steve Jobs, known for his aggressive and sometimes prickly personality, didn’t hold back when he met President Obama in 2010: The Apple CEO warned Obama he wasn’t going to win re-election.

          “You’re headed for a one-term presidency,” Jobs said during a meeting with the president that took place a year prior to Jobs’ death related to pancreatic cancer, according to his upcoming biography as reported by the Huffington Post.

          Walter Isaacson, who wrote the forthcoming Jobs bio, reportedly reveals that Jobs argued that Obama was jeopardizing his re-election prospects because of what Jobs took to be a pervasive anti-business climate in his administration. Jobs cited excessive federal regulations and operating costs for businesses as harmful legacies of the Obama White House.

          Also, Jobs nearly missed the meeting in the first place.

          From the Huffington Post:

          Though his wife told him that Obama “was really psyched to meet with you,” Jobs insisted on the personal invitation, and the standoff lasted for five days. When he finally relented and they met at the Westin San Francisco Airport, Jobs was characteristically blunt. He seemed to have transformed from a liberal into a conservative.

          After laying into the White House’s purported anti-business outlook, Jobs offered to help Obama repair the rift by arranging meeting between the president and a group of CEOs. When the guest list began to grow, Jobs reportedly resolved to back out of the gathering. Instead, he attended, though he poo-pooed the fancy menu. “But he was overruled by the White House, which cited the president’s fondness for cream pie,” Huffington Post writes.

          As for me personally, I’d like to give Mr. Obama a cream pie……

        Union members earn better wages and benefits than workers who aren’t union members. On average, union workers’ wages are 30 percent higher than their nonunion counterparts. While only 14 percent of nonunion workers have guaranteed pensions, fully 68 percent of union workers do. More than 97 percent of union workers have jobs that provide health insurance benefits, but only 85 percent of nonunion workers do. Unions help employers create a more stable, productive workforce—where workers have a say in improving their jobs.

        Communities benefit when workers have a voice on the job.

They called for a strike vote THREE TIMES! the members wouldn’t vote to strike so the union WALKEDAWAY FROM THEM!!! BTW,
            I forgot to add that if they HAD voted to go on strike, it would have been during some of the coldest months of the year in OHIO. I have been on the picket line during ths snow in Michigan and when you have no money comming in, no strike benefits cause you are a new member company, and all those heat bills start rolling in, YOU ARE SCREWED!!

            I’m retired from the army, but now I teach students history full time. BTW, I was awarded by the state for my good work. I guess there are rewards for teaching the real history of our founding. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

          • http://naver samurai

            Good job, Joe H! I also believe in self reliance and personal responsibility. I also have a sore back and have a limp with my left leg for the rest of my life, due to being wounded twice in Iraq. The only thing I continue to get from the government is my retirement check from the army. One of our friends asked me if I would come back to the army. I told him only if Obama bin Laden wasn’t the president. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

            Researchers concluded that the spill probably doesn’t pose a significant environmental risk, but the ash contained heavy metals like arsenic.We will have to wait and see.

      Guys, get real. Greed is the basic force of all economies. Virtually every important invention or acheivement was fueled by the fact that a large financial payout would go to the winner. Look at the economies that decided to eliminate the greed [reward]. They all became extinct or minor players. The “evil of success” theme is the anthem of the lazy – the people that don’t have the initiative to go out and be successful. They sit around and gaze at what others have accomplished through hard work and innovation and cry “I deserve that”. Or just I deserve for Mother Government to support me because hard work scares me…….As for your 1% BS, go read something informative. There are about 40 million companies in the US. Thay are almost all corporations run by an owner that works 60 hours a week trying to make his dream come true. If he is good enough, works hard enough and has good ideas, he might become wealthy. Why do you deserve any of his success? Why don’t you go out and do it yourself and give your money away if you think that’s how thw world should run. You are probably building a retirement through a defined benefits plan or 401k which is successful because of the profits of the large corporations [unless you are a government worker who assumes you have the right to just keep taking money out of my pocket]. You gladly accept the cash when it benefits you and then condemn the same companies for making money. Who do you work for and how do they prevent your check from bouncing………..Think about something beyond the fluff talking points and quit being a hypocrit.

        I agree…
        Now let us all get these people off of the oblama tit.

      • eyeswideopen

        Rich, you need to give back all the vacation time, paid sick days, health benefits, lunch hours, break time, to those companies you love so much, just who do think got those benefits for you? Unions that’s who.

    ILO=UN=one world government. This is part of the plan, keep them hungry and poor and we can move in and take total control of the people

    On the one hand we have a party filled with radical extremists: socialists, communist, perverts, atheists, parasites…and against them we have…hey, where’s the opposition? If we actually had an opposition party would all of this be happening? It seems clear, to me at least, that there is no opposition party. The Republican Party is a sham; otherwise, many of the things that are happening would not be happening. And Obama & co. would be facing charges of treason, not working on their next big assault on America.

    • eddie47d

      Hey you left out crony capitalists,Wall Street crooks,Hedge Fund parasites,ponzi scammers,mortgage schemers,banksters,tax loophole-rs,price gougers,corporate lobbyists and the rest of the greedy misfits. We don’t have to worry about their next big assult because it’s already here.

      • Monte

        eddie47d, they are all part of the ruling class. It is a plutocracy. Obama in bed with G. Soros and Buffet. It is not a two party system. It is the government and their rich buddies. That’s why nothing positive ever happens, why everything always remains the same. Parties come and go, but the direction never changes.

  • Raggs

    The very sad thing of this.. Is that the folks that suck off of everyone else are a total waste of human life and THEY know it!
    The city park rats and their god oblama are worthless scum in that they will do nothing at all but beg and curse and steal the crumbs that they do not even deserve.

    I have absolutely NO respect for oblama and as a matter of fact I hope he finds himself in bed with death.

    • edie47d

      You have always come across as the grim reaper and you prove yourself so well.

  • Raggs

    To me oblama is just yet another Q-daffy..
    And why would anyone get attached to a worthless scum?
    Why would anyone even consider thinking of supporting such a globalist pig with an agenda of destruction?.. Why is this man not in a boat in the middle of the pacific?.. Why did America stoop down this low?.. Why are Americans not kicking the chit out of our government?.. I have a lot of WHY’s but I cannot conclude the answer at a scale that is not understood.

  • Proud American

    My grandfather and his sons, my uncles, were coal miners. No union meant that the mine owners could do whatever they wanted to keep their workers from getting hospital and medical coverage or to just provide the bare minimum to the miners so the owner can make more money. That changed with the unions who staged work stoppages and strikes to make the Fedearl gov’t. look and listen to the problems of coal miners. Coal miners now have health insurance, pensions and retirement benefits. My grandfather and my uncles died of black lung disease, so coal could be delivered to heat the general public’s homes and provide residences with satisfactory living conditions, before the advent of natural gas. They were true heroes to me. Not your sissy-pants GOP representatives.

    Lots of Intelligent conversation here!! I agree with you all! A lot of what you are arguing about is true on all sides. I see this as a basic good vs evil. The good Moral Conscience of self governing people with few actual laws create a great environment for free trade while the over regulated all inclusive world economic global plan must include all laws from every nation is a free trade killer with huge moral consequences that destroy personal freedom. In short America has “sold” her soul for money possibly to the Highest Bidder. Who benefited? Government Politicians, Corporate Executives, United Nations, Etc. If money wasn’t flowing it wouldn’t be happening. I would suggest (have no facts here) that crap like Solyndra are more of a money laundering front to pass billions to ??? who knows???. Possibly for the future world government. Are you prepared to submit to the United Nations or a One World Figure? So much smoke and mirrors going on these days! One thing is for sure. America will never be as she was, We might as well push the Statue of Liberty over into the Ocean! Personal freedom in America is truly gone, most people have no idea they are controlled ideologically.
