Labor stability: good intentions and perverse results, by Miguel Jaramillo

Miguel Jaramillo shares his thoughts in Gestión about the effects of the labor reform promoted by the Constitutional Court in 2001 on the type of contract decisions and the well-being of workers: “This reform led to the replacement of just over 900,000 permanent jobs. Due to permanent contracts offer better salaries than temporary contracts, the loss of income of workers was around S/ 6,100 million in 2015. In addition, about 36,000 workers did not join a union due to the reform”.
