Last Night’s Talk Shows on 4 November 2020

It was all Trump-Biden, all the time on the airwaves last night, as we note in What We’re Tracking Today, above. The only business-relevant exception: Masaa DMC's Ramy Radwan interviewed Eric Ochelan, director of the International Labor Organization in Cairo, who said that the pandemic had led to an unprecedented crisis in the global labor market. Some 495 mn hours of work have been lost this quarter, with tourism companies, restaurants and exporters particularly hard hit. Ochelan said that the ILO is working with partners in Egypt to provide technical support specifically for women, who are more at risk of losing their jobs (watch, runtime: 21:15).
