Almost two million people have not worked for at least six months due to the economic impact of the pandemic, according to a report.
Those people affected were either unemployed or fully furloughed, the Resolution Foundation think tank said.
It is calling for the furlough scheme to remain in place for several months after lockdown restrictions are eased.
The Treasury said the government would continue to invest in protecting and creating jobs.
