Guatemala’s unemployment rate in March was 8.5%, the highest since the country’s 2010 transition to democracy.
In addition, a recent study by the International Labor Organization (ILO) found that Guatemala’s labour force is aging, and is projected to grow by 5% by 2025.
As a result, it is important to look at labor force trends to understand the labor force composition in the country, which is critical to developing economic policies and policies to mitigate the adverse impact of global climate change.
As the United States is currently experiencing its worst winter, the government has announced an increase in the number of days that people must work during the winter to prepare for winter storms.
According to the latest data released by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the number and percentage of people in the labor market increased in January and February compared to January and March 2016.
“The increase in January-February labor force participation was primarily due to people working more hours, while the decline in February-March participation was largely due to the labor shortage and the winter weather,” according to the BLS.
The latest data show that the majority of people working in February (82.6%) were in the private sector, and the majority were employed in non-agricultural industries, while about one-third were in other non-economic occupations.
On a per capita basis, Guatemala’s total population was estimated at 3,907,823 in March.
For the March employment rate, the BSL reports that the unemployment rate stood at 8.4%, the lowest since the year 2000.
There was a 0.3% drop in the total number of people unemployed during March, compared to the previous month.
While the unemployment in Guatemala is extremely low compared to other Latin American countries, the country is experiencing the worst winter in decades.
Although the government announced an increased number of winter days in the first half of March, the increase was only in the agricultural sector, with the majority working in nonagriculture occupations, according to a recent report by the Central Bank of Guatemala.
In the past, a large number of migrant workers have been employed in the agriculture sector, but in March, a significant number of migrants were not employed, according the report.
It was estimated that about 7,400 migrant workers were employed by the agriculture and mining sectors in the week ending March 14, compared with 1,600 migrant workers in the previous week.
This is a very significant increase from the 5,500 migrant workers employed by agriculture in the preceding week.
A significant portion of the migrants are from the Dominican Republic and Honduras.
According to the International Monetary Fund, more than half of the Dominican and Honduran migrants in Guatemala are Dominican nationals.
These are the two countries that have suffered the most during the recent years of extreme weather.
More than 40% of the Guatemalan population is eligible for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, and an additional 11% are eligible for free or reduced-price meals.
Meanwhile, a major focus of the government’s efforts has been to reduce food insecurity.
During the March economic survey, the number one topic of conversation was “food security.”
During this time, Guatemala has announced plans to increase the number (at least) of workers in food processing and distribution, and to expand the distribution of food to low-income households.
Furthermore, the governments plan is to increase access to health care and to reduce the use of private insurance.
Additionally, the authorities have pledged to address the high number of children in the work force, which affects the health of all workers and children.
Guatemala’s labor force is projected at 6.3 million people in 2025, according on the BGS.
Between February and March, employment in the government sector increased by 0.5 million people, which was due to increased participation in government-funded jobs, according a BLS report.
The number of jobs in agriculture rose by 0
