Abstract: Abstract The paper shows that the aspiration core of a TU-game coincides with the set of competitive wages arising in a labor market economy in which time is indivisible, but workers and firms can sign contingent labor contracts and trade in employment lotteries. The set of firms that are active in the market is endogenously determined at equilibrium and it coincides with the generating collection of the corresponding aspiration core allocation.
