Abstract

Se analizan las causas por las cuales Pereira se ubica con la tasa de desempleo más alta en Colombia, durante el período 2001-2009 con base en la Encuesta Continua de Hogares para la misma época. El resultado indica que las remesas de emigrantes afectan la posibilidad de participar en el mercado de trabajo.||*Este capítulo se encuentra incluido en la tercera parte del libro El mercado de trabajo en Colombia : hechos, tendencias e instituciones, titulada "El mercado de trabajo en el corto plazo"
