The INDEC report on the labor market released this Monday afternoon marked an increase in the unemployment rate throughout the country and Chubut was no exception.

According to the organization’s report, the unemployment rate in the urban agglomerate made up of Trelew and Rawson grew from 4% in the fourth quarter of last year to 6.7% in the first quarter of 2024, which places it at the top of the Patagonian cities with the highest number of unemployed.

Meanwhile, in the southern area of ​​Chubut (comodoro Rivadavia-Rada Tilly agglomerate), unemployment went from 1.8% to 2.8% in the same period.

Another notable fact from the official report is the number of people who have an employment problem in each of these two regions of Chubut: in Comodoro-Rada Tilly, among the unemployed (3,000), employed job seekers (7,000) and underemployed (4,000). There are about 14 thousand people who have difficulty getting a job or who work less than they would like.

While in the Valley, this group reaches 13,000 people but with a greater number of unemployed: 5,000, plus 4,000 employed job seekers and another 4,000 underemployed.
