dc.description.abstractIt is widely acknowledged that earnings subsidies promote employment by increasingrewards to labor market activity. This paper asks whether subsidies also affect job durationand wage growth. We provide an analytical framework that identifies causal links betweenearnings subsidies, job turnover, and wage growth. This framework highlights the importanceof the form of the subsidy on the decision about the type of job to accept and, hence, itspotential effect on within-job wage growth. The subsidy is predicted to increase job turnoverand to affect between-job wage growth by affecting reservation wages. We use thisframework to analyze the effects of the Canadian Self-Sufficiency Project (SSP). Consistentwith the theory, we find that experimentals have shorter job duration and experience fasterwithin-job and between-job wage growth than experimentals who continued to be eligible onlyfor Income Assistance.en_US
