dc.description.abstractPerhaps it does. We propose a model in which workers with little education or in the tails ofthe age distribution – the inexperienced and the old – have more chance of job failure(mismatch). Recruits? average education should then increase and the standard deviation ofstarting age decrease when strict employment protection raises hiring and firing costs. Wetest the model using annual distributions of recruits? characteristics from a 1975-95 panel ofplants in Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy, the UK and the US. The model?s predictions aresupported using the Blanchard-Wolfers index of employment protection as well as ouralternative index.en_US
