According to the document, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), farm workers, the self-employed, daily wage earners, refugees, and migrant workers are hit the hardest. Jobs in the service industries are affected, including in culture and tourism. A global economic recession will impact global population movements and hence affect countries with high levels of migration, and high remittance flows compared to their GDP.The crisis could lead to a decline in 195 million full-time equivalent workers in the second quarter of 2020 alone, the report says.
