Zu alt für einen Wechsel? Zum Zusammenhang von Alter, Lohndifferentialen und betrieblicher Mobilität

  • Lutz Schneider

Due to the well known fact of a reduced mobility of older employees the workforce aging will have strong consequences for job mobility in Germany. On the basis of the IAB-Beschäftigtenstichprobe (IABS) the subsequent article analyzes the impact of age on (inter-firm) job mobility. In particular the study answers the question, how wage differentials of a potential job change evolve during the working life span. It is shown, that a job change is less profitable for old than for young workers. However the analysis also demonstrates, that the wage differentials of job changes cannot explain the whole mobility advantage of younger employees.
