dc.description.abstractAtypical work, or alternative work arrangements in U.S. parlance, has long been criticized forproviding poorly-compensated employment. Although one group of atypical workers(contractors) seems to enjoy a wage premium, our cross-section results from the CPS andNLSY for the better-known category of temporary workers point to a negative wagedifferential of some 7-12 percent. It emerges that much of the latter disparity stems fromunobserved worker heterogeneity (accounting for which supports a wage advantage forcontracting work). Turning to fringes, the appearance in cross section of a potentially largedeficit in atypical worker health benefits is again reduced after accounting for permanentunobserved individual heterogeneity. But on this occasion the reduction is very modest.Further, there is now some indication that the wage advantage of contract workers partlycompensates for their reduced access to such benefits.en_US
