This article concerns dual job holding and its link to job mobility.
We present evidence from U.S. data on patterns of dual job holding,
hours changes, and job mobility. We find that workers move into and out
of second jobs frequently, that these movements are associated with
large changes in work hours, and that hours constraints may prompt
workers to take second jobs. Second, we review theories of dual job
holding and present a stochastic dynamic model of dual job holding and
job mobility in which decisions to take second jobs and/or change main
jobs are made simultaneously.
