No mercado de trabalho, observa-se que os trabalhadores de empresas com elevado risco de falência têm salários mais baixos que a média. Aparentemente, esta observação é contrária ao previsto pela teoria financeira relativamente a agentes racionais e avessos ao risco que prevê que os activos com maior risco apenas são preferidos se a sua rentabilidade também for, em termos esperados, maior. No presente trabalho demonstro num quadro teórico neoclássico (em equilíbrio parcial) que pode ser racional para os trabalhadores que auferem salários mais baixos a preferência por empresas de maior risco de falência.
