Abstract

This paper investigates the impact of tax system and interdependent behaviour on the individual decision to work in the regular and irregular labour markets. We first develop a theoretical labour supply model and in order to impose a minimum structure of preferences, we specify a quadratique utility function. The parameter estimates are estimated from full information maximum likelihood method. We estimate a simultaneous equation system corresponding to hours worked in both market, virtual non-wage income, regular net wage and expected irregular wage. We proceed to econometric estimations on a unique microdata set from randomized survey conducted in Canada during 1994. Our results confirm the interdependent behaviour hypothesis in the choice of activity and the existence of social interactions in the decision.
