Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all

8. Decent work and economic growth

Roughly half the world’s population still lives on the equivalent of about US$2 a day. And in too many places, having a job doesn’t guarantee the ability to escape from poverty.

This slow and uneven progress requires us to rethink and retool our economic and social policies aimed at eradicating poverty. A continued lack of decent work opportunities, insufficient investments and under-consumption lead to an erosion of the basic social contract underlying democratic societies: that all must share in progress.

The creation of quality jobs will remain a major challenge for almost all economies well beyond 2015.
