HERRERA, Nicolás  and  VARESI, Gastón Ángel. Latin‐American immigration, labor market and accumulation models in contemporary Argentina: A comparative analysis between the 90´s and the 2000´s. Trab. soc. [online]. 2016, n.27, pp.539-555. ISSN 1514-6871.

The article analyzes -in a comparative manner- the integration of Latin-American immigrants in the Argentinian labor market, between the 90's and the 2000's. In the first part we review theoretical perspectives on models of accumulation, (un) employment and the labor nature of international migration, that allowed us to frame our study object. Regarding these theories, we understand that they have paid little attention to the changes and / or continuities, produced on the employment situation of immigrants by the passage from one accumulation model to another. Incorporating this analytical dimension, our research tries to make a first contribution. After carrying out a long-term approach on the relationship between immigration and labor market in Argentina, in the second part of the paper, we use a set of statistical data to analyze the ruptures and continuities that occurred in the Latin American immigrants' labor situation during the 90s and 2000s. Finally the article presents a series of conclusions that allow to recover a wide-ranging reading about how both models of accumulation impacted, occupationally, on this population.
