After the 2001 crisis , Argentina has traveled a path of high economic growth linked to a fast restructuring of the labor market and the throwback of the worsening socio-economic and distributive which initiated in the mid- 70 's, and that deepened during the decade of the 90 's. Yet it persist a number of limitations related to job insecurity among which it they are low-paid workers, and particularly of those whose incomes are insufficient to escape from poverty (working poor), which ranges between 3% and 9% for 2011 depending if it is estimated by a lax poverty line or by a restrictive one. This study analyzes the evolution of this problem in the context of the restructuring of the economy, where it is identify the permanence of some vulnerable groups for which the fact of acceding to an employment still has not been matched with a significant improvement in the living conditions of their respective homes.
