In order to have a broad overview of the world of work from a gender perspective, it is not only enough to know the realities of cis men and women, but it is also necessary to consider other non-heteronormative identities. Labor inequalities affect the transgender collective in a differentiated manner, not only because of their gender identity but also because of their class position, ethnicity and territory.

In Argentina, the labor situation of this group of diversity presents an urgent public problem to be addressed. Through historical struggles carried out by the organizations of the transgender collective, they managed to constitute themselves as a political subject and enter the social and labor inclusion policies of the National Ministry of Social Development. We find the first antecedents in the field of Social and Popular Economy in the hand of the cooperatives Ellas Hacen, to later be formally included under the program Hacemos Futuro and its subsequent reconversion to Potenciar Trabajo, becoming a key precedent in terms of social policy that incorporates for the first time this group as a target population in order to promote their social and labor inclusion. However, transgender people continue to develop their activities in the informal labor market and remain in a state of permanent unemployment.

Therefore, in light of the regulatory framework and in the context of the recent enactment of the Law for the Promotion of Access to Formal Employment for Transgender "Lohana Berkins and Diana Sacayán", this paper2 aims to describe the socio-labor situation of this group in relation to gender inequalities in the world of work and link it with its passage through the aforementioned programs of socio-labor insertion in order to account for the gradual incorporation of gender in social policies.
