21 hours : why a shorter working week can help us all to flourish in the 21st century /

by Coote, Anna | New Economics Foundation | Franklin, Jane | Simms, Andrew | Murphy, Mary (ed.).

Publisher: London, U.K. New Economics Foundation 2010Description: 38 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: This report is part of The Great Transition. February 2010 Bibliography : p. 34-36 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: This report sets out arguments for a much shorter working week. It proposes a radical change in what is considered 'normal' down from 40 hours or more, to 21 hours. While people can choose to work longer or shorter hours, we propose that 21 hours, or its equivalent spread across the calendar year, should become the standard that is generally expected by government, employers, trade unions, employees, and everyone else.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Are older workers worthy of their pay? : an empirical investigation of age-productivity and age-wage nexuses /

by Rute Cardoso, Ana | Institute for the Study of Labor | Guimaraes, Paulo | Varejao, Jose.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA). Discussion paper ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: August 2010 Bibliography : p. 16-17 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Using longitudinal employer-employee data spanning over a 22-year period, we compare age-wage and age-productivity profiles and find that productivity increases until the age range of 50-54, whereas wages peak around the age 40-44. At younger ages, wages increase in line with productivity gains but as prime-age approaches, wage increases lag behind productivity gains. As a result, older workers are, in fact, worthy of their pay, in the sense that their contribution to firm-level productivity exceeds their contribution to the wage bill. On the methodological side, we note that failure to account for the endogenous nature of the regressors in the estimation of the wage and productivity equations biases the results towards a pattern consistent with underpayment followed by overpayment type of policies.Availability: (1)

Retire Later or Work Harder? /

by Bell, David N.F | Institute for the Study of Labor | Hart, Robert A.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA). Discussion paper ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2010 Bibliography : p. 31-32Summary: We compare two policies of increasing British state pension provision: (a) increase the pensionable age of men and women, (b) maintain the existing retirement age but require older workers to work longer per-period hours. There are reasons for policy makers to give serious consideration to the under-researched alternative (b). First, from wage - hours contract theory we know that there are potential gains to both workers and firms of allowing hours to rise in work experience. Second, there is strong evidence that job satisfaction rises in age. Third, there has in any case been a significant overall increase in the hours supplied by older workers in the last two decades. We review the relevant theory, model the trade-off between later retirement versus increased work intensity, produce relevant background facts, and provide estimates of the policy trade-offs.Availability: (1)
