Before the management of President Nayib Bukele, even without having faced a widespread health and economic crisis, around 10,000 jobs were created in the country in a year.
Thanks to the long-term vision of the head of state, in just one month it was possible to register more than 10,000 new workers, while throughout 2021 the ISSS recorded the registration of 97,938 new workers.
Entrepreneurs decide to hire staff because they trust the direction the country is taking, in addition to the fact that they have found the conditions to execute their projects. Eight out of ten workers who have just entered the system are in the private sector.
