L’instabilità dei nuovi lavori: un’analisi dei percorsi lavorativi
AbstractThis paper starts from the hypothesis that an effective measurement of the area stability and in the labour market cannot be based only on a an indicator of labour mobility (number of job to job transitions) but requires to take into consideration the actual amount of time worked by each individual (level of saturation of working time). The evidence presented confirms our hypothesis showing that, in the Italian case, the increasing instability of work histories (of young people and in the entrance stage) is due to a growing difficulty of working on a continuous basis, as well as to the increasing time required to get a stable job. The evidence presented also shows that being an unstable worker has a negative impact on wages both in the short and in the long run. The exception is represented by those flexible workers which are able to combine high levels of mobility with a full saturation of working time. However, this category represents a rather marginal share of total young people accessing the labour market.
