COVID-19 epidemic not only threatens people's life safety and health, but also has a significant impact on economic and social development. Under the epidemic situation, the expected changes of enterprises lead to more cautious employment of regular employees, and flexible employment has become an important channel for stable employment under the epidemic situation. Under the crisis, there are opportunities for the development of digital economy and new-type labor-capital relations. Therefore, to solve the employment problem, we must adhere to the idea of globalization and long-term. From the perspective of social average wage, the social average wage has dropped greatly in a short period of time, resulting in the phenomenon that the income distribution gap between urban and rural areas, industries and regions is too large, which has affected China's income distribution system. This paper puts forward corresponding policies and measures to reduce the impact of COVID-19 epidemic on China's labor market and workers' income.
