Does the color of the collar matter? Employment and earnings after plant closure


Schwerdt, G; Ichino, A; Ruf, O; Winter-Ebmer, R; Zweimüller, J (2010). Does the color of the collar matter? Employment and earnings after plant closure. Economics Letters, 108(2):137-140.

Abstract

We investigate whether the costs of job displacement differ between blue and white collar workers. In the short-run earnings and employment losses are substantial for both groups but stronger for white collars. In the long run, there are only weak effects for blue collar workers but strong and persistent effects for white collars.
