Did European Labor Markets Become More Competitive in the 1990s? Evidence from Estimated Worker Rents
In: Labor Markets and Institutions
AbstractThis Paper analyses the evolution of quantitative measures of employee rents in Europe during the nineties, using the European Household Panel Survey. I look at two classes of measures: wage differentials between workers along industry and firm size dimensions; and estimated welfare differences between employed and unemployed using a model of labour market transitions. The results are largely negative; there is robust evidence of falling rents during that period only in Ireland.
