Análise dos salários pagos no comércio de mercadorias - RS: 1949-70

José Antonio Fialho Alonso


The content of the present report concentrates on the behavior of wages paid within the trade market of Rio Grande do Su I from 1949 to 1970. The empiric analysis is based on data from the I.B.G.E. Economic Census.
Periferic conditions of the State economy were take into account methodologically in the present study of salary conduct in commerce. Therefore, the central hypothesis of the report in based on the fact that economy as a whole and trade and wages in particular, are elements that absorbed the effects of the main structural transformations that originated from the hegemonic area of capital accumulation
(region between Rio and São Paulo).
Among the most relevant facts is the increasing participation of mass salaries in the final outcome of commercial activities during the 50s and the paramount loss of these gains during the 60s, due to the exceptional economic growth between 1968 and 1970. The average salaries paid by businesses that deal with durable goods increased two times as much as the ones paid by perishable foodstuff businesses, thus the opposite of what occurred from 1949 to 1959. Furthermore, a bit of informality was introduced into the universe of the judicially formal trade market.
