Understanding heterogeneities in the labour market
Labour market outcomes are heterogeneous across countries and gender. The EU-funded MaMiLabor project will advance our understanding of the intended and unintended consequences of different public policies on labour market conduct and results. From a macroeconomic perspective, it will analyse the role of income effects and the welfare state as drivers of hours-worked differences by level of development. Taking a microeconomic perspective, MaMiLabor will focus on gender issues in the labour market by investigating the impact of maternity leave policies on the labour market success of women, the role of experimentation in reducing women’s tendency to avoid competitive positions, and the effect of an increasing female share of average wages in an occupation.
