- Small Enterprises, Large Gaps. Employment and Working Conditions in Micro and Small Enterprises in Latin America and the Caribbean. (Thematic Labour Overview 2)pdf - 1.3 MB
The predominance of micro and small enterprises (MSEs) and the dearth of medium-sized enterprises hinder growth of enterprises, as well as the associated reallocation of productive resources and the transition f the labour force from low productivity activities to those of higher productivity. In other words, there has been little change in production structures of the region. This transformation is essential for sustained, inclusive growth. Currently, labour markets in the region have major gaps in productivity, inequality, employment and working conditions.
