What are the most pressing challenges for labor rights in the age of COVID-19? International Labor Organization (ILO) Director General Guy Ryder joins us for a conversation about the ILO's current priorities and agenda. The discussion will address a range of issues, including rising unemployment, the impact of the crisis on migrant and informal workers, the impact of trade agreements on workers, and gaps in social protection.
