dc.description.abstractUsing panel data for West Germany and Great Britain, we show that there are strikingdifferences in overtime work and overtime compensation in the two countries in the 1990s.Our estimates reveal that the observed overtime patterns affect both the evolution of themonthly labour earnings distribution and individual economic well-being differently in WestGermany and Great Britain. Besides varying labour market institutions in the two countries ahigher incidence of a combination of performance-related pay and unpaid overtime in GreatBritain is an important factor in explaining the observed differences. With regards to WestGermany, we show that the current policy of transforming paid overtime in ?working timeaccounts?, which is conducted in the spirit of ?work-sharing?, is neither beneficial foremployed workers in terms of income mobility, nor in terms of overall job satisfaction nor interms of working time preferences.en_US
