Corona-affected dismissal and hiring more than 50,000 people nationwide Including expected Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare September 1 11:31
A survey conducted by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare through Hello Work showed that more than 50,000 people lost their jobs due to the effects of the new coronavirus, including prospects. The number of people who have lost their jobs is actually thought to be even more, and the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare is going to provide support for re-employment.
The Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare is investigating cases where companies losing business results due to the spread of the new coronavirus have been dismissed or “stopped” from renewing their contracts through the National Labor Bureau and Hello Work.
As a result, it was found that the number of people who lost their jobs due to layoffs or “stopped hiring” from the end of January to August 31 was 53,326, including the forecast, exceeding 50,000.
Because it is the number of people who were able to grasp such as Hello Work, it is thought that there are actually even more people who have lost their jobs.
The number of people who lost their jobs due to the effects of the new coronavirus has continued to increase since then, exceeding 10,000 on May 22 and 30,000 on July 1 and 40,000 on July 29.
The Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare will actively utilize “employment adjustment subsidies” and other measures to call on companies to maintain employment and to promote support for re-employment.
