Improving Job-Worker Matching and Labour Market Performance

Contents:

Author Info

  • Samir Amine

Abstract

Using a matching model in which agents are horizontally differentiated and where the nature of jobs is endogenous. We study the public policies effects on selectivity and labour market performance. We show that in a matching model where technological choices are endogenous and the wage setting is constrained by a minimum wage, an increase in unemployment benefits would lead to an improvement in labour productivity and to negative impact on job creation.
