Interactions of Workers and Firms in the Low-Wage Labor Market


This paper presents an analysis of workers who have a history of persistently low earnings in the past. Some of these workers manage to escape from this low-earning status over subsequent years, while many do not. Using data from the Longitudinal Employer Household Dynamics (LEHD) program at the U.S. Census Bureau, the study analyzes the characteristics of workers as well as employers that enable some low-wage workers to improve their earnings status over time.
