  • The main goals of this paper are to estimate the effects of unemployment duration on formerly unemployed workers' wages, to analyze the determinants of part-time versus full-time reemployment, and to measure the impact of part-time versus full-time work on wages. Using two panels of the SIPP, I find that for both men and women, the direct effect of unemployment duration on wages disappears after controlling for unobserved worker heterogeneity. Furthermore, holding everything else equal, the probability of part-time reemployment does not change over time for women and increases for men, while the probability of full-time reemployment decreases as unemployment progresses for both genders. In addition, for men, my results show that there is no part-time versus full-time wage differential for workers with less than a high school education while there is a positive part-time wage premium for women. Finally, for both women and men, I find evidence of the existence of a full-time wage premium for higher levels of education, and the premium increases with the level of education.
