dc.description.abstractTransition has involved major job destruction and creation. This paper examines the skillcontent of these changes using a detailed three country firm survey. It shows that transitionhas exerted a strong bias against unskilled labour who have lost employmentdisproportionately. Moreover, job creation in new firms tends to be biased against workerswith low educational attainments and skills. The skill content of blue collar work has alsoshifted upwards. Although there is variation across the sampled countries, these appear to becommon features. They will have major longer run implications for the level and structure ofemployment and for inequality through the distribution of earnings.en_US
