University, Physical Education as profession and the labor marketing

  • Marcelo Weishaupt Proni Centro de Estudos Sindicais e de Economia do Trabalho, IE/UNICAMP, Campinas, SP


The main purposes of this paper are: (i) to delimitate the importance of the university in the progressive social and political construction of Physical Education as a profession; (ii) to present the sectors of economic activity where are concentrated the opportunities of employment and to show the regional differences about the average wages of the Physical Education workers; and (iii) to discuss the tension relationship between the professional education from the Brazilian universities and the major demands in labor marketing. I intent to suggest that the professional regulation produced a division between two “professional identities” inside Physical Education, and it reinforced the segmentation in this competitive labor marketing, where are much different occupational situations. Beside, I intent to show that the Physical Education labor marketing isn’t organized like the Education labor marketing. The professional regulation tries to create exclusive labor marketing, but it isn’t able to organize this wide and unequal labor marketing, to diffuse an appropriate employment standard and to increase the wages level.
