No 270187, 1988 Annual Meeting, August 1-3, Knoxville, Tennessee from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Controlling for human capital characteristics, seasonal jobs pay 57 percent more than non-seasonal jobs. Controlling for job characteristics reduces this wage differential.
