A Clarion Call for Just Jobs: Addressing the Nation’s Employment Crisis


As part of Centre for Policy Research’s ‘Policy Challenges-2019-2024: The Big Questions for the New Government and Possible Pathways’, Sabina Dewan, President and Executive Director of JustJobs Network and Senior Visiting Fellow, Centre for Policy Research writes a piece on addressing India’s employment crisis.

India’s labour market is ailing. Addressing of the employment crisis has been mired in a raging debate over the scale of job creation, the availability of data, and which sources and indicators – unemployment or productivity and wages – accurately reflect the state of the job market. The new government has an opportunity to move beyond this debate, acknowledge what ails the labour market, and take measures to address the crisis.
