Abstract: This paper reports the results of human subject and computational experiments designed to examine how the level of the "inactivity payments" to workers and to employers affects the evolution of cooperation among workers and employers. The related impacts to unemployment and job vacancy rates are our primary focus. However, we also examine the impacts on labor force participation, productive efficiency, the willingness to form long term relationships, and other outcome measures.
