Abstract

Past research on the federal sector job queue fails to incorporate the important role of unionization. The authors estimate a two-stage bivariate probit in which the willingness of a worker to queue for a union job enters the estimation of the federal queue. They demonstrate that the failure to implement their approach may lead to the inappropriate conclusion that there does not exist a federal queue in the U.S. labor market. The authors identify the characteristics that lead workers to seek employment in the federal sector and, as a byproduct, also provide independent confirmation of the presence of a queue for union jobs.
