Title:Did European Labor Markets Become More Competitive in the 1990s? : Evidence from Estimated Worker Rents PDF Logo
Authors:Saint-Paul, Gilles
Issue Date:2004
Series/Report no.:IZA Discussion paper series 1067
Abstract:This paper analyses the evolution of quantitative measures of employee rents in Europe during the nineties, using the European Household Panel Survey. One looks at two class of measures: wage differentials between workers along industry and firm size dimensions, and estimated welfare differences between employed and unemployed using a model of labor market transitions. The results are largely negative; there is robust evidence of falling rents during that period only in Ireland.
