Global Employment Trends 2014. Risk of a jobless recovery?

The Global Employment Trends 2014 report said employment growth remains weak, unemployment continues to rise, especially among young people, and large numbers of discouraged potential workers are still outside the labour market. Profits are being made in many sectors, but those are mainly going into asset markets and not the real economy, damaging long-term employment prospects. On current trends, an additional 200 million jobs will be created by 2018. This is less than what is required to absorb the growing number of new entrants in to the labour market.
