Job Switching and Wage Growth


  • R. Jason Faberman
  • Alejandro Justiniano


This article shows a remarkably strong relationship between job switching and nominal wage growth. We also find a fairly strong relationship between job switching and the cyclical component of inflation. Furthermore, job switching seems to be predictive of both wage growth and inflation.
