Since 2020, one and a half million jobs have been created

To govern is to create work” was one of the phrases uttered by John Peronalthough his economic doctrine It also included labor rights, social security, progressive distribution of income, deleveraging, or the use of foreign currency for production. rather than to flee, among other economic policy factors.

For this reason, although in all these latter areas the government has been unable to show conclusive progress or achievementit can account for “Peronist” management in terms of job creation, with one and a half million jobs created since the beginning of 2020.

The calculation was made for Discovery by the economist Alfredo Calcagnodoctor of economics University of Paris I and with a long history in organizations of The United Nations. He specified that, according to the figures of the INDEC for labor marketbetween the first quarter of 2020, i.e. before the pandemic, and the second of 2022, employment increased from 12,045,000 to 12,993,000 peoplewhich would total approximately 950,000 additional jobs.

He also added: “It should be remembered that these figures are those that emerge from the household survey which cover 31 urban agglomerationswhere 29,137,000 people live, with whom if we project the figure to 47 million inhabitants, this gives an employment growth of one and a half million peopleincluding formal, informal and non-salaried employees.

Although the figures announced by Calcagno are until June this year, the momentum hasn’t stopped in recent months. According Center for Political Economy (CEPA)the latest employment measures, focused on those registered, show that in August another month of job growththus creating formal jobs continues to increase continuously for 25 months.

Specifically, STUMP noted that, that month, the registered private employment increased by 6,535 jobs, ie 0.1% more than those that existed in July. This means that the employment recovery has reached 75% of what was lost while running Cambiemoswho in the past two years destroyed 275,000 jobsFor what 58,000 registered jobs would still have to be recovered return to pre-macrista crisis levels.

For his part, the Center for Research and Training of the Argentine Republic (CIFRA) of CTApointed out in its latest report that private sector registered employees grew in 2022 at an even faster rate than in 2021because if in all 2021, its number increased by 200,000, in just 7 months of 2022, it increased by 186,000that’s to say 3.1% more.

Also, from Labor and economy news perspectivecomposed of economists linked to the National University of Rosarioit has been reported that since the start of the current government’s mandate and despite the pandemic, 600,000 formal jobs have been created.

High growth, poor quality

As you can see, of the one and a half million jobs created, only 600,000 were recordedbut even within them, more than half, or 377,000, corresponded to new monotributistaspointed to Look for. Same, 131,000 were publicwith what working in a company and in a dependent relationship, was reduced to only 139,000.

But not only does the quality of employment deteriorate when it is disaggregated between registered private employees, monotributists, public or informal employees, but also the remuneration also differs significantly from the peak obtained in 2015at constant or current pesos, workers received on average 220,132 pesoswhereas last August, this figure had fallen to 165,205 pesos, equivalent to 134,000 pocket pesos.

Most of the loss (48,096 pesos) corresponded to the Macrista government.

Since STUMP They also pointed out that current compensation remains at similar values ​​at the end of 2019, although the Attention argues that the payroll is practically the same as in 2019, but it is distributed over 21.6 million jobs instead of 20.7 million that yearwhich also shows the economic growth that has been experienced between 2019 and 2022”it was not appropriated by the workers”.
