The Macedonian labor market faces surplus gaps in high skill occupations, except for workers in IT, reaching the maximum in educational occupations, where there are up to 71 unemployed persons for one job vacancy. On the other hand, six of eight low-skill occupations are in deficit, which is particularly pronounced for service and elementary workers, shows a study entitled “Labor mobility preconditions for the regional economic integration: Pros and cons from Macedonian perspective”, published by Finance Think.

The paper points out that more than 60% of the registered unemployed persons have no designated occupation, with low or no education. Therefore, deeper regional integration of the labor market can encourage mobility that will increase the available set of skills on the market, and offer more employment and earning opportunities for persons in surplus occupations with higher skills.
