dc.description.abstractWe describe the dynamics of second job holding in Britain during the 1990s using panel datafrom the British Household Panel Survey. Our results show that second job holding issurprisingly persistent over time – about 10% of workers have a second job at any point intime while two thirds of second job holders remain in second jobs for at least two consecutiveyears. We find that negative financial shocks trigger second job holding, and that second jobsare not a measure to smooth labour supply over time. Heterogeneous main jobcharacteristics are more important than hours constraints in determining second job holding.en_US
