Dividers in the Labor Market
In advanced societies the labor market is one of the major sources of inequality. This book develops models that reveal the primary causes of such labor inequality in Norway. The author's eclectic theoretical strategy blends insights from five research traditions, building then into one model which captures factors causing inequalities in earnings, job security, and labor market mobility.
