Sample text

By reducing employment, the firm can counteract an increase in total labor costs stemming from higher employment costs. As a result, output falls; to counteract this effect, the firm increases the wage in order to raise the level of effort, which tends to increase output. The net effect on output is, nevertheless, negative (dY /d χ < 0). Thus, the positive effect on output from higher wages via increased work effort is outweighed by the adverse effect operating through the reduction in labor demand.

Conversely, when σ < 1, and labor categories are gross complements, a rise in the effort level of skilled labor reduces the wage gap. 29 Note also that if the unskilled wage is set at a binding minimum, the behavior of ω will reflect only the behavior of wS ; as can be seen in (7), an increase in e then always increases the wage ratio. I now endogenize the level of effort, e, under the assumption that wages affect the productivity of skilled workers. Following Agénor and Aizenman (1999a), a simple form of the effort function e can be specified as e = 1 − (1 − em ) θ wS , em ∈ (0, 1), (9) where denotes workers’ reservation wage or an alternative wage, em a “minimal” level of effort, and θ ≥ 0.

Indeed, Pencavel (1997) argued that decentralized bargaining tempers the union’s ability to impose across-the-board increases in wages, thereby keeping labor compensation more in line with productivity of workers in a competitive market. Thus, decentralizing collective bargaining may increase labor market flexibility (and reduce the degree of segmentation) by more closely linking contract provisions to the conditions of the firm. Similarly, increasing collective autonomy may increase flexibility if it facilitates direct negotiations and helps the parties to internalize the costs and benefits of their negotiations.
