Looking for incentives to explain Long Distance Commuting
AbstractThis paper suggests that long distance commuters obtain a wage compensation of 10% on average. With respect to the length of the trip, wages increase 5.7% per commuted hour. Regions with the highest influx of commuters are simultaneously those with higher wage compensations. This research suggests that the labor market alone does not seem to present evidence which foreshadows a reduction in LDC flows Moreover, this paper display how the labor market offers workers higher incentives in order to maintain the flow of long distance commuting.
