Youth labour markets in Spain: Education, training, and crowding-out

  • Dolado, Juan J.
  • Felgueroso, Florentino
  • Jimeno, Juan F.

The stylised facts describing the evolution of youth labour markets in Spain can be characterised as a "high-skill, bad-job trap" where higher educated workers end up in semi or unskilled entry jobs while crowding out lower educated workers from that type of job. A simple matching model with multiple contracting regimes is used to explain how a less tigher skilled labour market can be lead to crowding-out of lower educated worker and less on-the-jobtraining.
