Abstract

In this paper we contribute to the study of the Spanish unemployment puzzle. We introduce the user cost of labour in the analysis (instead of wages) as this might be the relevant price for firms considering to hire a new worker. We construct a pseudo-panel by combining two Spanish microeconomic surveys (the labour and the family expenditure surveys), and estimate that the user cost is more procyclical than average wages.
