The labour market in a given country according to a number of relevant factors: contingency structure, the way of functioning, segmentation, the internal dynamics, the institutional setting, the reform capacity, the economic, social and psychological implications represents one of the most important indicators for the efficient of the economic system in the country and the citizens’ quality of life. Having in mind the previous relevant observation, a subject of research in this paper will be the analysis of the Macedonian labour market considered from a wider social context from the aspect of the impact of the social, cultural, political, normative, ethical and psychological factors. Namely, without any intention to diminish the importance of the economic factors (the macroeconomic policy, the aggregate demand, investments, industrial production, export, entrepreneurial climate, the human resource management etc.) that are inherent to the labour market structure and functioning, in this occasion particular attention will be paid to diagnostics, classification and significance of specific social phenomena in the improvement of the labour market functioning in a our country. In this context, the scope of the analysis will include the educational system, migration, demographic transition, political ambience (internal and external), geographic limitation, the human and social capital, the national attributes, axiological social matrix, inter and intra ethnical relations, the inequality, poverty, the organisational culture, social pathology, the public opinion and media, the moral erosion etc. Taking into account the scope and complexity of the problem, because of its interactive character, our analysis is determined in direction of detecting those relationships where on the first place is the identification of the impact of the above selected processes on the labour market and not in reversed direction. This approach has its weaknesses, but on the other side enables to focus on the analysis of those factors that directly influence the improvement of the Macedonian labour market functioning. In the same time, this is in function of building priorities for creating strategies and policies where the unemployment problem would be conceived not only from the economic aspect, but in the general social context where it objectively belongs.
