Are young workers compensated for a high strain job?
H. DE WITTE
In this paper we test whether starters in a stressful job get a compensation for the burden they face. The compensating wage differentials model predicts a wage compensation for accepting a job with high workload. The Karasek model (1979) highlights the importance of a balance between demands and control in the job. The combination of both models leads to the hypothesis that the wage compensation for high workload will be lower in a job with high autonomy. The selectivity corrected estimations do not confirm this hypothesis. So, entrants on the labour market who start in a stressful job are in a problematic position as they are not compensated for this burden.
