Stigmatisierungseffekte bei Arbeitslosigkeit?


  • Steffes, Susanne


Jede Periode in Arbeitslosigkeit führt für die betreffende Person zu einer erhöhten Wahrscheinlichkeit, später erneut arbeitslos zu werden oder es dauerhaft zu bleiben. Hierfür kann es verschiedene Gründe geben. In einer Studie von Biewen und Steffes (2008) wird analysiert, ob Stigmatisierung ein Grund für diese Persistenz ist. Hierbei geht es um die Frage, ob Arbeitgeber in einer gesamtwirtschaftlich schlechten Lage mit hoher Arbeitslosigkeit dem Tatbestand, dass ein Bewerber arbeitslos ist, geringere Bedeutung zumessen als in der Hochkonjunktur. Die Ergebnisse einer Studie zeigen, dass dies tatsächlich der Fall ist.
