Job Displacement, Relative Wage Changes, and Duration of Unemployment
John Addison () and
Journal of Labor Economics, 1989, vol. 7, issue 3, 281-302
Using special Current Population Survey data on displaced workers, this article investigates the wage consequences of job displacement in a framework that emphasizes the effects of past duration(s) and unemployment duration(s) on postdisplacement wages. The authors' model also attempts to take account of the simultaneity between unemployment duration and the postdisplacement wage. It is found that duration strongly reduces subsequent earnings and that considerable overstatement of the loss in firm-specific training investments is implied by conventional routes to measuring wage losses.
