Inclusive and well-functioning labor markets are a prerequisite for the economic strength of a country. This includes ensuring enough jobs and social justice protection. Having a job is an important factor for material well-being, security, equality and personal human development, but in Georgia the status of an employee is not associated with normal living conditions. Due to high level of poverty in the country, the population agrees to work for an inadequate fee. The part of the informal sector in the labor market is quite high, this is mainly associated with low pay, unbearable conditions and the absence of safety standards. In such conditions, the main task of the government is to protect the social rights of workers, reduce the informal sector of the labor market, and implement effective and non-discriminatory labor market and employment policies.
