The world's industrial powers are facing an extended period of struggle in the labor market with no relief in sight on the jobless front, according to an extensive new survey released Tuesday by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
Faced with mounting criticism, the State University of New York at Buffalo is distancing itself from a Marcellus Shale gas-drilling study released earlier this month by the school's own Shale Resources and Society Institute.
"This is clearly a demanding time for labor market authorities," said John P. Martin, OECD's director for employment, labor and social affairs, in a statement released with the report. "They are confronted with a slow and uneven recovery, a growing risk of increased structural unemployment in some countries and tighter constraints on public expenditures."
"In the short term, an improvement in labor market conditions is largely dependent upon a broader economic recovery and is thus shaped by factors that labor market authorities cannot control directly," Mr. Martin said.
