Peru Employment and Wages, Poverty, and Income Distribution
Sources: The Library of Congress Country Studies; CIA World Factbook
In the first post-World War II decades, the economy was able to absorb the growing urban labor force fairly well, allowing real wages to rise and probably achieving some reduction in poverty. But from the early 1970s to the early 1990s, change has been downhill in such respects, with falling real wages, increasing poverty, and worsening indices of underemployment.
