Census Holds LED Webinar on Job Ladders and Growth in Earnings, Hours, and Wages
About the Job Ladders and Earnings Webinar
Using research done by the Center for Economic Studies and the Census' Longitudinal Employer-Household Survey (LEHD) program, this webinar considers the impact of the recent slowdown in the job ladder effect on wage and earnings growth in the U.S. from 1996 to 2015.
Researchers were able to develop an accounting method that measures how workers moving onto and up the job ladder to contribute to growth in average earnings, hours, and wages.
The findings from the research showed these findings:
- Net hires from non-employment tend to lower these aggregates, while workers changing employers lead to increases.
- These contributions mostly offset each other, so job stayers drove the high growth in average earnings and wages in the late 1990s and 2015.
- Evidence of an "active hours job ladder" was also found.
