    Este artículo analiza cómo los varones españoles, a pesar del sustancial incremento de su formación, tienen tasas de ocupación semejantes en las tres graves crisis de empleo desde el establecimiento de la democracia. Esto parece contradictorio con la expectativa de una mayor y mejor participación laboral pareja con la elevación de la formación. El análisis cuestiona la habitual recomendación de incrementar la formación como respuesta para los problemas de ocupación, en especial de los menos cualificados. This article analyses how male employment have behaved so closely in the three last economic and employment crises, although there has been a very relevant increase in the average education level by birth cohort. This is a contradiction respect to the expectation of higher levels of employment and job quality with higher educational levels. The reasoning leads to deep concerns about the role of training and education solving jobless problems of workers, especially for those low-skilled.
