Abstract

Erwerbsunterbrechungen führen langfristig zu geringeren Einkommen. Eine einjährige Erwerbspause vermindert das durch die Berufserfahrung erworbene Humankapital um 33 %. Die daraus resultierenden Lohneinbußen hängen jedoch nicht nur von der Dauer, sondern auch vom Timing der Unterbrechung ab.
