Ukraine has labor shortage due to emigration, mobilization
Ukraine is experiencing a limited availability of workers, in particular due to migration and mobilization. At the same time, the demand for workforce is growing
This is stated in the National Bank of Ukraine's macroeconomic and monetary review for October."The number of vacancies continued to grow due to both seasonality and economic recovery," the document says.
At the same time, the number of resumes was declining, the NBU said. One of the possible reasons for this is the gradual recovery of Ukrainian employment. The NBU cites the results of a survey by Rating, according to which among people who
who were employed before the full-scale invasion, the share of those who are unemployed has fallen to 25%.
The NBU also points to a limited supply of labor due to migration and mobilization.
Human Rights Ombudsman Dmytro Lubinets said that more than 8 million Ukrainians have become refugees. Of these, more than 5 million have applied for temporary resident status in neighboring Western European countries.
On September 13, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen announced further assistance to Ukrainian refugees in the EU.
On September 28, the EU extended temporary protection for Ukrainians until March 2025.
