Mehr Beschäftigung durch Subventionierung der Sozialbeiträge? Eine empirische Evaluation aktueller Reformvorschläge
We analyse two recent proposals suggesting the subsidy of social security contributions in order to increase employment in the low wage sector in Germany. Our findings based on a behavioral microsimulation model show: First, both reforms have only small effects on labor force participation and modest positive effects on total working hours. Second, a subsidy based on individual earnings rather than on family income is more favourable to employment as it avoids the well-known negative work incentives of secondary earners.
