[fre] Segmentation et marchés locaux du travail par Jacques-François Thisse et Yves Zenou L'existence de segmentations et de cloisonnements spatiaux sur le marché du travail est un fait empirique bien établi. L'objet de cet article est d'exposer et d'évaluer les principales explications qui en ont été proposées. Celles-ci ont en commun de supposer que la force de travail est hétérogène, à savoir que les travailleurs sont différenciés soit par leur spécialisation, soit par leur localisation géographique. [eng] Segmentation of Local Labour Markets by Jacques-François Thisse and Yves Zenou The segmentation and geographical compartmentalisation of the labour market are clearly and empirically established facts. This article presents and assesses the main explanations put forward, which all assume that the work force is heterogeneous. This means that workers are differentiated either by their specialisation or by their location.
