Guadalajara, Jal. Given the shortage of labor in most of the economic sectors of the state, Jalisco will go out to look for workers in the entities that have high unemployment rates in the country, announced the head of the Secretary of Economic Development (Sedeco) in the state , Roberto Arechederra.
“We are working on a program that is going to be launched this year to attract employment from other entities that have unemployment rates above the national average and that there are possibilities of inviting them to fill the vacancies that are in Jalisco,” he stressed.
He indicated that due to the growth in attracting both national and foreign investment, “the lack of talent is a happy problem, but in the end it is a problem (…) So, hiring is a challenge for companies.”
Arechederra Pacheco explained that Jalisco has an unemployment rate of 2.3% while the national rate is 3.2%; “In economic terms it is known as that we are at full employment.”
There are no workers, they no longer want to work in this sector,” said the president of the Jalisco delegation of the National Chamber of the Clothing Industry (Canaive), Roberto Santana.
“In addition to supply, another aspect that has hit not only clothing but all industries is labor; simply and simply there is not, it is very difficult to find people who want to work”, commented the president of Canaive in the entity.
For his part, the coordinator of the Council of Industrial Chambers of Jalisco (CCIJ), César Castro, said that “most of the sectors continue to require talent; we have close to 5,000 vacancies that we need for companies (in the industrial sector)”.
“Labor is a great issue that we have to discuss; Restaurants in general are working with 70% of the staff that is needed because right now it is difficult to find staff,” said the president of the National Chamber of the Restaurant and Seasoned Food Industry (Canirac), Mario Ávalos.
In the hotel sector, the president of the Association of Hotels and Mansions of Jalisco, Sally Rangel, affirmed that in the union, it takes up to three months before finding a receptionist and attributed the problem to two factors: the young generation which, he said, are more demanding both with the positions and with the salaries that they are offered, such as the scholarships that the federal government grants.
“Why are they going to make an effort to get up early, put on their uniform and go to work, if in some families they have up to four members with a scholarship,” the businesswoman pointed out.
According to the president of Canaive Jalisco, Roberto Santana, another factor that has influenced the shortage of labor in the textile-clothing sector is that other activities, including agriculture, pay better wages to workers, and he cited the case of the agave plantation that absorbed a good part of the workforce of the clothing broker in Jalisco.
“In this Zapotlanejo, Ayotlán, San Miguel El Alto, Villa Hidalgo, Encarnación de Díaz corridor, we have been looking for people who even want to work from their homes and taking their work to them because they no longer want to go to the factories,” he explained.
“In the area where I am, everything went to the agave; Ladies, ladies, gentlemen, everyone went to work in the agave plantation because they are paid more, but we are an industry that cannot bear those salaries,” Santana Flores specified.
He commented that six months ago, a businessman from Singapore arrived in Canaive who wanted to establish himself in the metropolitan area of Guadalajara but required 10,000 workers to start up, “so where the heck from?”
The head of Sedeco, Roberto Arechederra Pacheco indicated that the agency will shortly announce the details of the program to attract talent from other entities. For now, he said, the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare (STyPS) implemented the Jalisco Works program through which it takes personnel recruitment caravans to all the municipalities of the entity.
