Is the Italian Labour market segmented?
the paper evaluates the existence of segmentation in the Italian labour market along the lines of the dual labour market theory. It shows that even workers belonging to traditionally strong groups - such as male, head of family, in the central classes of age may be confined in the secondary segment of the labour market because of rationing or other barriers to entry the primary segment. These are young individuals, with little education, serving mostly as blue-collar workers in industry, construction and retail sale sectors. For them, return to education is almost nil and wages do not increase much with experience.
