Job search by unemployed women: Determinants of the asking wage
This study uses actual observations of reservation wages from the National Longitudinal Survey of Mature Women who were 35 to 49 years of age in 1972 to estimate, with a two-stage least squares procedure, a model of the jobsearch behavior of unemployed women. To a greater extent than shown by most previous studies, the results indicate that unemployed women substantially reduce their reservation wages as the period of their unemployment progresses. Also, recipients of unemployment insurance are shown to ask for wages that are substantially higher than those asked for by other unemployed women. (Abstract courtesy JSTOR.)
