Outline

Mr. Shinnosuke Kikuchi, Prof. Sagiri Kitao, and Ms. Minamo Mikoshiba study how the COVID-19 crisis could affect earnings inequality across het- erogeneous individuals in Japan. They use the Employment Status Survey (ESS) to identify groups of individuals who are more vulnerable to the COVID-19 shocks, which likely affect workers in different industries, occupations, and employment types in different magnitude. They assess the impact using various data and early ev- idence including consumption expenditures data from the JCB Consumption NOW during the first weeks of the pandemic. Our study identifies significant heterogeneity in vulnerability to the COVID-19 shocks across workers of different types. They find that the crisis will hit low-income groups by more and is likely to significantly exacerbate inequality through many channels that we could think of, calling for urgent and large-scale assistance targeted towards affected individuals.

講師、および北尾早霧(さぎり)氏(東京大学大学院経済学研究科教授)、御子柴みなも氏(東京大学大学院)は、コロナ危機が日本の労働市場、特に様々な属性(性別・教育水準・雇用形態・産業・職業)の労働者に与える影響を分析し、ワーキング・ペーパーとして発表した。

分析の結果、今回の危機は低所得者層により大きな打撃を与え、労働市場における格差拡大につながる可能性の高いことが鮮明となった。

過去の経済危機とは異なり、人との接触を伴うサービス業などの産業で、在宅勤務が困難な職業に従事する労働者への影響が、大きいと考えられる。

そのような最も危機に脆弱なカテゴリーの仕事に就いているのは、性別では女性、教育水準では大卒未満、雇用形態では非正規雇用、といった所得水準が相対的に低い層に集中している。

とりわけ、雇用形態別に見ると、最も脆弱なタイプの仕事についているのは正規雇用者のうち17%であるのに対して、非正規雇用者のうち44%がそういった最も脆弱なタイプの仕事に就いている。

ゆえに、この危機は幅広い労働者に甚大な被害をもたらすが、その中でも特に低所得者層を直撃し、少なくとも短期的には所得格差を著しく悪化させる可能性が高い。

以上の点を踏まえると、短期的には、危機の影響を受ける個人を対象とした迅速かつ大規模な支援が要請される。

 講師は、上記分析の結果も踏まえて、他国での分析や金融危機との比較も交えつつ、今般のコロナ危機が日本の労働市場に与える影響について発表する。
