Labor Market Precarization in the Context of Technological Change

Journal of Economic Regulation, , Vol. 10 (no. 4),

This article is devoted to the study of technological innovations’ influence on the structure of universities ‘courses and the level of graduates’ employment. There are different ways of defining the term “technologies and technological changes”, but this paper is based on the broad sense of the term, which also includes social technological changes. Due to these changes, the institute of education forms the system of our priorities and beliefs about the way the society has to function. An analysis of institutional changes in the sphere of high education as far as technologic progress shows the high level of influence on changing the structure of employment among graduates. For instance, it causes the wide-spreading of forms of non-standard employment and as a consequence the precarization of the labor market. Besides the global technological changes in the labor market, this paper demonstrates the local peculiarities of graduates’ employment in Southern Federal District with using of statistic data.
