    ILO Director-General joins Richard Quest on CNN to share the results of the World Employment and Social Outlook report for 2022. He says that we are looking at a two-speed recovery with richer countries doing better than the developed ones, further entrenching inequalities between and within countries. The global community need to do better to get vaccines rolled out across the world and ensure dept does not become a trap for poorer regions.
