This 30th edition of the OECD Employment Outlook examines the labour market performance of OECD countries as well as the prospects in the short term. Chapter 1 offers an overview of recent developments, focusing on how marginalised groups (youth, the low skilled, women, the chronically unemployed) have fared during the crisis. Chapter 2 looks at what structural factors may contribute to labour markets being able to weather economic downturns with limited social costs. Chapter 3 examines the relationship of labour compensation to domestic output. Chapter 4 looks at the policy challenges posed by green growth and jobs. The chapters are complemented by a comprehensive statistical annex.
