Major Economic Shocks: Variation in Future Employment and Earnings for Low- and Middle-Skill Displaced Workers

Grant Year: 2020

Jeffrey Zabel, Keren Horn, Richard Peiser, and Henry Pollakowski will examine how individuals fare after losing their jobs as a result of involuntary layoffs. They will analyze how laid-off workers adapted to the shock of employment loss, including how job loss affected their employment, earnings, and geographic location. The project’s findings will be presented in a series of papers.
