Future of Marine Jobs during ongoing COVID 19

Shipping is the lifeblood of the global economy and fishing provides essential food. The pandemic sways the safety and well-being of seafarers and fishers and the future of their jobs.

“Seafarers have been among the hardest hit from the fall-out of the pandemic, said Corinne Vargha, Director of the ILO’s International Labour Standards Department.”

Hundreds of millions of jobs have been put on hold by coronavirus shutdowns around the world. That’s been especially true in countries already hit by the pandemic. The ILO found that COVID-19 had left almost all 2 billion of them finding it extremely hard to make ends meet.

An ongoing job-hunt and a pandemic make for a heavy blend. How so? By now, it is pretty obvious that this virus has not just attacked our bodies, but also traumatized our economies and stock markets. If an economy falls into a recession, almost all of us are at risk of losing our jobs.
