  Plenary Lecture

Romanian Labour Market Face to Face with the Economic Crises

Assistant Professor Daniela Zirra
Romanian-American University, Bucharest

Abstract: The labour market is characterized by a special sensitivity. This subsystem of the economy is more vulnerable than the other markets as against the negative influences generated by the evolution of the economic environment. Also, re-establishing the balance on the labour market is very difficult, because the effects of the perturbing factors are to be found for long periods of time.
Considering these, we can say that the Romanian labour market represents a good example to demonstrate how difficult is to create the conditions that could make labour supply more adaptive and flexible in a very dynamic business environment, to satisfy a very exigent labour demand taking into account the technology evolution and to built new and high quality work places. In the last almost two decades, the evolution of the Romanian labour market was spectacular.
Millions of Romanian qualified workers have migrated to the Western European Countries or other developed countries looking for well paid and good jobs, especially between 2000 and the summer of 2008. The global economic crises, which have begun in the end of 2008, will reduce the economic activity and will generate unemployment and a strong unbalance of the labour markets all over the world. A lot of Romanian workers are coming back for a safe work place, but the national economy is not capable to help them.
The subject of this paper is to make some appreciations about what could happen in the future and how the Romanian firms and authorities could react to one of the biggest issue of economic crises, respectively the unemployment and the instability of the work places in a very disturbing and rapidly changing economic environment.
