    The purpose of this paper is to examine the mobility of the earnings of Finnish low-paid workers during a twenty-year period. The analysis is carried out on a large longitudinal data set constructed from a 10 per cent random sample of the whole population in the quinquennial censuses in Finland from 1970 to 1990.The paper differs from the bulk of the earlier literature in that we, in contrast to most earlier studies which have had access to data from a four or five year interval, are able to look at a relatively long piece of individuals' career histories. Since mobility as a rule increases with the length of the time period considered, this may be important in assessing whether low-paid employment is a stepping stone into higher paid jobs or a permanent trap.
