The problem of unemployment since the 1970s is a field of research that has not received much attention yet within the political historiography of Chile. Taking a historiographical point of view, this paper seeks to contribute to the knowledge about processes and political means with which the dictatorship faced increasing unemployment. Dictatorial measures failed to boost employment and solve associated social problems; they “succeeded” only in terms of flexibilizing employment within a neoliberal framework that sought to reduce workers’ rights leading to labor precarization.
