author: Eugene Rakhimkulov

Certain stabilization in labor market is observed in Bashkortostan, the deputy Prime-Minister of Government RB, Minister of labor and population social protection RB Fidus Yamaltdinov reported to participants of today’s joint gathering of the interdepartmental commission on migration policy under Government RB and the Coordination committee on assistance to population employment RB.

“Though some specialists bind positive changes in the labor market with seasonal phenomena, certain positive shifts are to the fore” – he said – “The number of officially registered unemployed people in Bashkortostan reduced to 40,7 thousand at present time, while in April this index exceeded 49 thousand. The coefficient of intensity in the labor market reduced from 6 (in March) to 2,3 (in June)”.

At the same time along with positive changes several negative tendencies are registered. For example the share of specialists with higher professional education and the youth, aged between 20 and 29, has noticeably increased in the structure of unemployment for the last several months.
