Abstract

INZUNZA-MEJIA, PATRICIA CARMINA. THREATS AND OPPORTUNITIES OF THE LABOR MARKET IN THE DIGITAL ECONOMY OF MEXICO. Rev.fac.cienc.econ. [online]. 2018, vol.26, n.2, pp.45-60. ISSN 0121-6805.  http://dx.doi.org/10.18359/rfce.2926.

This literature review article aims to analyze the perspective of workers in Mexico on the threats posed and opportunities offered by information and communications technology (ICT) in the labor market. This implies reviewing the theoretical basis and some institutional empirical references that reveal a contracted reality, but also contribute positive reflections on the benefits of digital economy for employees and employers. The findings suggest that, if technological changes displace workers by replacing man with technological machines, such displacement will also create alternative employment in those sectors of the economy that are able to absorb displaced jobs, especially non-automatable activities. In addition, ICT will possibly provide job opportunities and, consequently, both employers and workers shall be digitally resilient and adapt to the changes imposed by digital economy, for which they shall develop technological and digital skills.

Keywords : digital economy; digital resilience; digital skills; labor market; technological skills.
