In One Year, 50,000 Education Jobs Lost in Mexico

At the close of the first quarter of 2013 almost 50,000 jobs in education had been lost, including teachers, administrative staff and maintenance staff, since the same time last year.

January’s National Occupation and Employment Survey (ENOE) reveals that 1,823,800 Mexicans working in the educational sector were counted in this period.

At the same time last year, however, these workers totaled 1,873,741. That is to say, in just one year the number dropped by 49,941, or 2.6%, according to the National Institute for Statistics and Geography’s ENOE.

Compared to last December, when President Enrique Peña Nieto came into power, there has been a loss of 24,719 jobs, down from 1,848,519, implying a decrease of 1.33%.

Six of every ten of these workers are women, and 56% of the total between 30 and 49 years old, but there are another 79,000 over 60 and 16,000 between 14 and 19, in addition to 312,900 between 50 and 59.
