From Displacement to Reemployment: Job Acquisition in the Flexible Economy
Political Science, International Development, and International Affairs
This article examines the duration to reemployment after displacement. We use partial likelihood estimation of proportional hazard models to examine effects on the duration to reemployment. Using the Current Population Survey: Displaced Workers Survey (1992), we assess the relative utility of theories of reindustrialization and develop an alternative theory of hyperexploitability. In general, the analyses provide greater support for our hyperexploitability, rather than the reindustrialization, explanation for reemployment dynamics. (C) 1997 Academic Press.
