Govít hit for downplaying
massive unemployment rate

Local labor leader Wennie Sancho slammed the national government for downplaying the massive unemployment rate in the country.

Sancho, secretary-general of the General Alliance of Workers Associations, said that based on the Social Weather Stations survey, the unemployment rate in the country escalated to 27.3 million in July this year from 7.9 million in December 2019.

“Our joblessness rate is at an all-time high of about 45.5 percent. The damage control strategy of the government is to water down the issue. But it won't work because massive unemployment poses a threat to our economy. It is a clear and present danger,” he stressed.
