Abstract

This paper offers some notes on the relationship between the Mercosur and the labor market. In particular, we examine the domestic labor legislations and the regional trade, and the impacts of Mercosur on the labor markets. We raise some hypotheses to explain the simulation results that suggest that the impacts of Mercosur on the labor markets are modest.
