The Effects of Working Time, Segmentation and Labour Market Mobility on Wages and Pensions in Ireland
Most research on pay and benefit differences between full- and part-time work focuses on characteristics of part-time workers and part-time jobs. However, part-time jobs are more open to labour market 'outsiders', and such labour market mobility can influence wages. We analyse the effects of working time, gender, segmentation and mobility on wages and pension benefits in Ireland. Both segmentation and mobility influence wages directly, and controlling for segmentation in a wage model eliminates the negative effect of part-time working. The wage effects of labour market mobility differ by gender and labour market segment. Pension entitlement is strongly influenced by gender, working time, labour market segment and mobility.
