Déclassement des jeunes et politiques de l'emploi. Exploitation de l'enquête Génération 98 du Cereq




This research takes an interest to the gap between employment and education of young people in the survey Generation 98 of Cereq. This research compares the positions of young people who are recruited on jobs with classic status and subsidised jobs. A lot of people are downgrading because their level of education are superior to the level of job's qualification. A statistical method (match between qualifications and socio-economic group) is confronted with a subjective approach (the person interviewed feels downgraded or not). These different approaches suggest that downgrading is an important phenomenon; it is stronger in classic labour market than in the subsidised jobs. This fact testifies to the strong selection of the employers. The hypothesis is that relegate position is a queuing problem in the labour market and the subsidised jobs influence the competition for job.
