World Day of Action for Decent Work
World Day of Action for Decent Work is held on October 7. This event in the first decade of the month October is annual. Help us
The 7th of October is the World Day of Decent Work, and like World Environment Day and Peace Day, it is a day that demands a global effort on the part of every person.
Decent work means opportunities for every- one to get work that is productive and delivers a fair income, security in the workplace and social protection for families, better prospects for personal development and social integration.
As 68% of people believe the government is bad at tackling unemployment, solutions outside of the public sector must be explored. Considering only 7% of the world’s workers are unionised when millions need the protection they provide, drawing attention to these vital organisations and encouraging their implementation the world over is of profound importance.
