Labour Market Adjustments in Europe

Labour Market Adjustments in Europe

Edited by Julián Messina, Claudio Michelacci, Jarkko Turunen and Gylfi Zoega

The group of contributors in this book come from academia and international organizations in Europe and the USA. They focus on trade unions, which affect real-wage flexibility and the provision of training to workers. They also concentrate on employment protection legislation, which discourages firms from firing old workers and also from hiring new ones. The structure of housing market imperfections that can greatly affect regional mobility is also discussed.
