seminar – 12:00


We study how a dual labor market, with time-limited fixed-term and protected open-ended contracts, affects the occupational careers of workers. Attachment to occupations is affected by the cost/benefit of remaining in the occupation (which depends on the contract type the worker has or will have in the future), vs. starting in a new occupation (where it matters which contract types are available when starting afresh). We evaluate the forces that shape the careers of workers quantitatively, in a dynamic equilibrium model of the labor market. Finally, we study the impact of policy changes to address duality.
