advertisements online in their search for suitable workers. Since 2007, the private company Textkernel http://www.textkernel.com/nl/ . has been scraping online vacancies in the Netherlands.

Population with Criminal Records and Racial Disparity in Labor Markets

prospects do not necessarily decrease. However, many recent papers claim employment prospects are diminished, and it could be having an aggregate effect on the economy. Schmitt and Warner (2011) estimate that the ex-offender population lowered the male employment rate in 2008 by 1.5 to 1.7 percentage points, costing the United States about $57–$65 billion. A more recent paper by Abraham and Kearney (2018) used 2014 NLSY97 data as a proxy to estimate that there are 5.13 million working age individuals with a prior prison term of more than 2 years and that the 2016

In contrast to unemployment benefits, social assistance – noncontributory guaranteed minimum resources – does not have any requirements such as waiting periods and compulsory payment of contributions.

Frontal assault versus incremental change: A comparison of collective bargaining in Portugal and the Netherlands

on collective bargaining has tended to concentrate on the level of bargaining . An influential view originally proposed by Calmfors and Driffill (1988) held that systems with predominantly sector-level bargaining lead to excessive wage claims relative to productivity. As a result, these systems were thought to be associated with weaker labour market performance than either centralised systems, which provide flexibility at the aggregate level by inducing unions and employer associations to internalise the macro-economic effects of wage claims on economy

The Impact of Parental Leave Policy on Child-Rearing and Employment Behavior: The Case of Germany

all parents to claim the benefits during the first six months after childbirth. Afterward, only 50% of families were entitled to the benefit. Even though fathers became eligible for parental leave in 1986, the male take-up ratio of the leave was insignificant. Parental leave was effectively maternal leave, and child-rearing was considered a traditional maternal activity within the “bread-winner” household model.
