Decent work and economic growth

Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all

Wherever you live in the world, being able to find secure and fairly paid work is a big priority for most people.

It’s a crucial step away from poverty for families, and helps governments pay for public services like health and education through the taxes generated as a result. But millions of people are either unemployed, or forced to take jobs that are insecure, with very low pay or bad working conditions.

This goal is about creating decent jobs for everyone, as well as annual economic growth of at least 7% in the very poorest countries. All whilst improving fair pay, environmental protection, opportunities for women, youth and people with disabilities, and cracking down on forced and child labour. Now that would be a job well done.
