Segmentation of the labor market in Algeria and the determination of wages in agriculture, formal and informal sector
While anchored in the logic of empirical validation of the theory of segmented labor market, this study propose to go beyond the structure of the labor market based on the formal and informal divide, to the use of a structure based on Institutional Differentials associated with the hold job protection and Regardless formal or informal workplace. The approach in this context raises a quite relevant problematic in linking the issue of segmentation of labor market to that of validation of the theory of human capital. To do this, we used the data available from micro 'consumption and income "Among Households survey Conducted by the National Office for Statistics in 2000 (Algeria).
