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.
