Women Get 60% of All New Jobs in Sí£o Paulo, Brazil

The labor market in the city of São Paulo is quite different from the labor
market in the rest of Brazil. Six out of every ten new jobs in the metropolitan
region of São Paulo during the first half of this year were occupied by women,
reports city officials.

A survey by the Secretary of Development, Labor and Solidarity, which interviewed 252 people between September 13 and 30, also found that in São Paulo fully 86% of on-the-books (carteira assinada) workers had a high school education.


The significance of those numbers is that nationwide, according to Ministry of Labor data, the majority of workers are male and only 50% of them have a high school education.


Economic growth in the first half, as measured by the employment rate, is also above the national average in the city of São Paulo (127.3% compared to 76%).


Another difference between São Paulo and the nation is that in the former most of the new jobs were in the services segment.


Nationwide over half of all new jobs in the first half were in the farm and industrial segments.
