|Title:||Atypical work: who gets it, and where does it lead? ; some U.S. evidence using the NLSY79 |
|Authors:||Addison, John T.|

|Abstract:||Atypical work arrangements have long been criticized as offering more precarious and lower paid work than regular open-ended employment. In an important paper, Booth et al. (2002) were among the first to recognize that notwithstanding their potential deficiencies, such jobs also functioned as a stepping stone to permanent work. This conclusion proved prescient and has received increasing support in Europe. In the present note, we provide a parallel analysis to Booth et al. for the United States - somewhat of a missing link in the evolving empirical literature - and obtain not dissimilar similar findings for the category of temporary workers as do they for fixed-term contract workers.|
