The COVID-19 health crisis has turned into a global economic crisis, putting at risk the health, jobs,and incomes of millions of people around the world. The real economic impact dimension of the pandemicis unknown yet, but what we already knowis that the impact is allreadydifferent at the national, regional,and even local levels(Baileyet al., 2020). Implicitly the consequences for the labour market will follow the same pattern, having heterogeneous effects according to the different industrial branches(with some branches losing and others gaining and growing), the size of enterprises affected (SMEs seems to bethe hardest hitby the confinementmeasures1), the level of jobs affected by restrictive measures(lower-skilled jobs have a much higher risk of dissolution) and so on.
