The UN warned Unemployment will rise by 11 million in the next five years due to slower growth and turbulence.

More than 212 million people will be jobless by 2019 against the current level of 201 million.

The ILO World Employment and Social Outlook - Trends 2015 report said an extra 280 million jobs would have to be created by 2019 to close the gap created by the financial turmoil.

The job scenario improved in the United States, Japan and Britain but remains worrisome in several developed economies of Europe.
