Abstract

Labour turnover of low-tenure workers rose in Argentina during the second half of the nineties, precisely after important changes were introduced in labour regulations. The analysis of exit rates indicates that the alterations in the labour market institutions apparently had no effect on labour mobility. This fact appears to be associated to the shortage of occupational opportunities which may have increased the incidence of unstable trajectories among those working without coverage. Moreover, the rising unemployment increased the participation of non-registered, highly-mobile workers. Hence, this is a process that by itself led to an increase in overall mobility.
