omote lasting, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, achieve full and productive employment, and ensure decent work for everyone.
About half of the world's population still live on the level of about two dollars a day. In many places, having a job does not mean being able to escape poverty. The slow and uneven progress requires us to rethink and adjust our economic and social policies for poverty eradication.
The continued lack of decent employment opportunities and insufficient investment and consumption have eroded the social contract that is the foundation of a democratic society, that is, "Everyone has a share in the income of progress." Creating high-quality jobs will continue to be one of the main challenges facing almost all economies in the long term after 2015. Sustainable economic growth requires society to create conditions so that people can obtain high-quality employment that can stimulate the economy without harming the environment. It also requires employment opportunities and a decent working environment for all people of working age.
Challenges and goals in terms of economic growth and job security:
● The global unemployed population rose from 170 million in 2007 to 202 million in 2012, of which 75 million are young men and women
● There are nearly 900 million workers, or one-third of the working population, living below the two-dollar poverty line; the only way to get rid of poverty is to provide stable and sufficient income jobs
● Between 2016 and 2030, the world needs to provide 470 million jobs for people who have just entered the labor market
