Continuity Despite Change

This chapter examines Argentina as an example of a “corporatist” labor law regime, with high levels of both individual and collective labor regulations. It argues that the country’s early labor market conditions – including significant immigration from Europe and relatively high education and skill levels – led to more extensive initial legal protections. In later decades, labor law became a vehicle for incorporating a broad swath of workers into the movement surrounding Perón and the party that has continued his legacy. It concludes by contending that in recent years, strong ties between the Peronist party and organized workers account for the relatively meager liberalization that has occurred.
