Abstract

En este documento se estudia la caracterización del mercado laboral en el sector hotelero de Cartagena y las principales áreas metropolitanas. Para ello se analizan de manera descriptiva los principales indicadores laborales y se estiman los retornos a la educación y a la experiencia en el sector, utilizando las ecuaciones de Mincer y la corrección de Heckman. Los resultados indican que el nivel educativo en el sector hotelero es bajo y que las características laborales difieren del sector turismo agregado. Como se ha encontrado en otros estudios, las mujeres empleadas en la hotelería perciben un salario menor que el de los hombres. Además, se observa que Cali y Medellín presentan las tasas de informalidad promedio más altas en el sector hotelero, mientras que Cartagena la tasa de informalidad más baja.
