Jalisco Exceeds Level of Employment Prior to Pandemic

Jalisco formal employment for June 2021 has exceeded the pre-pandemic number of registered jobs as of December 2019. The entity is second nationally for jobs generated during the economic reactivation.

In Jalisco, as of June 2021, 1,820,785 workers are registered in the IMSS, which has exceeded the number of 1,812,699 jobs registered at the end of 2019, the most indicative figures prior to the pandemic. 

For the sixth consecutive month, the state presents positive numbers in job creation. During the month of June, 5,178 formal jobs were created, which exceeded the historical average for the month of June and represents 7.9% of the national total. 

These figures are the result of the implementation of the Jalisco Plan for Economic Reactivation, with economic support to companies affected by the pandemic, and also thanks to the long-term Economic Development strategy, both implemented by the Government of Jalisco. 

“The figures that the IMSS announced today on the generation of new jobs in Jalisco of more than 5 thousand 100 jobs already position us at higher levels than we had at the end of December 2019. In the period of economic reactivation of August 2020, as of June 2021, Jalisco is consolidated as the second place in the generation of new jobs nationwide with more than 78,000 new jobs created,” said the Secretary of Economic Development of Jalisco, Ernesto Sánchez Proal. 

During the period of economic reactivation, from August 2020 to June 2021, 78,150 formal jobs have been recovered in Jalisco and the entity is positioned in second place at the national level, contributing 11.5% of the jobs recovered in the country.
