Mexico | Formal employment collapses in April, two years of job creation lost

Measures to support employment considering the paralysis and economic slowdown have been insufficient to halt the destruction of formal jobs, resulting in an unprecedented contraction in the formal employment. There is a high risk that job destruction became structural as more companies close permanently.

Key points

  • Key points:
  • Accumulated loss of 494 thousand jobs in the first four months of the year
