Abstract

Mientras las políticas educativas deben ser designadas con una perspectiva de largo plazo, considerando el desafío que el futuro puede acarrear, es la experiencia pasada la relevante para designar programas de capacitación que remedien la situación de los trabajadores golpeados. De acuerdo a la experiencia reciente vivida en Uruguay, el diseño de un plan de contingencia para las crisis de empleo debe tomar en cuenta que, a pesar de que todos los tipos de trabajadores serán afectados, los trabajadores menos calificados probablemente perderán su empleo incluso en sectores que no se contraen y la proporción de trabajadores calificados con desempleo aumentará. Una lección de largo plazo para la política educativa debe ser disminuir la cantidad de trabajadores “inempleables” en períodos de auge y desestimular la formación muy específica en sectores proclives a las crisis. El modelo presentado sugiere que, dada la baja participación de los trabajadores en los programas públicos de capacitación, la hipótesis más factible es la existencia de una oferta racionada o de un problema de diseño.
