Horas de Trabajo: Determinantes y dinámica en el Perú Urbano

  • Gustavo Yamada


    (Departamento de Economía, Universidad del Pacífico)

"El estudio encuentra una oferta de horas de trabajo en el Perú Urbano de pendiente negativa. De esta manera, mientras menor es la remuneración real por hora en el mercado, mayores son las horas de trabajo ofertadas. Este tipo de comportamiento ayudaría a explicar la tendencia creciente de las horas trabajadas en las últimas dos décadas, las que para el caso de los hombres en Lima Metropolitana pasaron de un promedio de 50.3 horas semanales en 1985 a 54.8 horas en el 2000. El estudio también obtiene indicios de que estos aumentos en las horas trabajadas, cuando superan límites razonables (33.4% de trabajadores en Lima Metropolitana tuvieron jornadas semanales mayores a las 60 horas en el 2002), pueden afectar otros aspectos del bienestar de los trabajadores y sus familias. Otro hallazgo de la investigación es el aumento de la oferta individual de horas trabajadas por pertenecer a cohortes de trabajadores tan numerosos como los de reciente ingreso al mercado de trabajo."
