The Timing of Labor Demand

主讲人: Daniel S. Hamermesh
主讲人简介: Daniel S. Hamermesh

简介: We examine the timing of firms?? operations in a formal model of labor demand. Merging a variety of data sets from Portugal from 2003, we describe temporal patterns of firms?? demand for labor and estimate production-functions and relative labor-demand equations. The results demonstrate the existence of substitution of employment across times of the day/week and show that legislated penalties for work at irregular hours induce firms to alter their operating schedules. The results suggest a role for such penalties in an unregulated labor market, such as the United States, in which unusually large fractions of work are performed at night and on weekends.
