Abstract

This paper's aim is to discuss Morocco's last fifteen years' job market policy and youth recruitment in the public sector. It is a know fact that there are youths who struggled before being recruited in the public sector, this paper will attend to the effects of three successive governments' policies on the Moroccan labour market. Knowing that the rates of unemployment, especially among graduates, is doubling the overall unemployment rate that is currently at ten percent (10), Morocco, in spite of the number of schemes it has investigated to assist graduates to find work, still faces a growing wave of demonstrations regularly organised by frustrated protesters calling for their right for a job opportunity. The three last ruling Moroccan governments, namely the ones led by The Socialist Union of Popular Forces Party, The Independence Party, and The Justice and Development Party, contributed through different political plans to solve the problem of unemployment among graduates, or at least to reduce their numbers and temporarily absorb their anger; however, in despite those efforts, nothing is forthcoming on the ground. The objective here is to highlight the policies of previous governments and show pitfalls of the current one, whose policy are proving to be a total failure in comparison to previous ones.

Objectivo deste artigo é discutir a política de mercado de trabalho em Marrocos nos últimos quinze anos e o recrutamento de jovens no sector público. é sabido que existem jovens que, arduamente se esforçam para serem recrutados no sector público. Este artigo irá discutir os efeitos das três sucessivas políticas dos governos no mercado de trabalho marroquino. Sabe-se que a taxa do desemprego, em particular entre os graduados, onde o desemprego geral é de cerca de dez por cento (10%) o país, mesmo com diferentes abordagens adoptadas para ajudarem os jovens a engrenar no mercado do emprego, existe uma crescente onda de manifestações e protestos organizados por aqueles que não conseguem aceder ao emprego e clamam pelos seus direito de oportunidade a um emprego. Os três últimos governos marroquinos, ou seja, os liderados pela The Socialist Union of Popular Forces Party, The Independence Party, and The Justice and Development Party contribuíram através de diferentes planos políticos para resolver o problema do desemprego entre os licenciados, ou pelo menos para reduzir seus números e absorver temporariamente a sua raiva; no entanto, apesar desse esforço, nada mudou a realidade. O objectivo aqui é destacar as políticas de governos anteriores e mostrar armadilhas do actual governo, cujas políticas estão provando ser um fracasso total, em comparação com os anteriores.
