The Labor Supply Of Self-Employed Workers: The Choice Of Working Hours In Worker Co-Ops

John Pencavel

No 13-036, Discussion Papers from Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research

Abstract: If workers in cooperatives are like workers in conventional workplaces, they care about the length of their working hours. In this paper, their choice of hours is characterized as a conventional labor supply decision and a familiar hours-wage relationship is derived. This is estimated using mill-year observations on the plywood co-ops in the Pacific Northwest. The results are compared with those from the labor supply behavior of self-employed workers and with those in capitalist plywood mills.
