COVID-19 Will Leave an Uneven Impact on Unemployment

As the impact of COVID-19 continues to take grip on the economy, the Malaysian Institute of Economic Research (MIER) has forecasted that 2.4 million Malaysians may lose their jobs. This means we could see unemployment spike to as much as 15%. We speak to Dr. Niaz Asadullah about which groups are more vulnerable to the effects of unemployment than others, as well as what measures the government needs to take in order to cushion this blow.
