Unemployment in Peru 65% ?

Postby tupacperu » Mon Aug 02, 2010 11:47 am

Read an interesting article in RPP.com.pe

States that 65% of Peruvians are unemployed and 15% are under temporary contract. Wonder why they report that the unemployment rate in Peru is about 9-10%. Very misleading if you read that Peru's economy is booming. Also misleading in the terms of reduction of poverty.

On the subject of the gas, it considered important that it is defined if this it will be exported or not, it is not clear if it will be used for the transformation of the economy or will generate jobs'.
