Comment les familles et les personnes seules reagissent-elles aux licenciements? Un eclairage canadien

  • Morissette, Rene
  • Ostrovsky, Yuri

A l'aide d'un vaste ensemble de donnees longitudinales canadiennes, nous examinons si, en reaction au licenciement que subissent les maris, les gains des femmes et des adolescents augmentent. Dans le cas des adolescents, nous ne relevons pour ainsi dire aucun indice d'un , mais nous constatons que, dans le cas des familles sans enfants en age de travailler, les gains des epouses compensent au cinquieme environ la perte de revenu du travail des epoux cinq ans apres leur licenciement. Nous comparons aussi les pertes correspondantes a long terme des maris et des hommes seuls. Le premier de ces groupes peut etre geographiquement moins mobile que le second, mais nous pouvons voir que l'un et l'autre essuient a long terme a peu pres les memes pertes de revenu du travail. On doit ajouter que les pertes de revenu (avant et apres impot) sont tres semblables d'un groupe a l'autre. Toutefois, comme les hommes seuls ont un revenu bien moindre avant leur licenciement, le choc en revenu relatif est bien plus grand pour eux que pour les maris licencies (et leur famille)
