Abstract

This paper develops a model of search on the labour market with training. We explore how the combination of an average job tax and a marginal wage tax can be used to alleviate inefficiencies in job matching and, at the same time, raise a positive revenue with minimal distortions in search and training. We find that (i) a wage tax is less distortionary to raise revenue than is a job tax if training is not distorted initially; (ii) this conclusion may reverse in the presence of training distortions; (iii) marginal wage taxes are less distortionary in economies where bargaining parties can commit to the wage profile.
