Labour and productive inclusion programmes

Exclusion from the labour market and employment in low-productivity sectors —in poorly paid jobs that do not provide access to social protection— are an especially worrisome aspect of the cycle of reproduction of poverty and inequality. In recent years, the countries of the region have been introducing an increasing number of labour and productive inclusion programmes as it has become clear that cash transfers to families with children or older adults alone cannot break the vicious cycle of poverty and that not all working-age adults are equally at risk of unemployment or have the same opportunities for obtaining decent work, even during upswings in the business cycle (Rossel and Filgueira, 2015).
