Title: Turning the Tide: Long-Term Gains of Graduating in a Recession for Low Educated Entrants
Abstract: Economic conditions at time of labor market entry have been shown to have large negative effects on labor market outcomes for an extended period of time. The immediate effects have been shown to be worse for lower educated entrants. However, as low and high educated entrants differ in how they can accommodate this negative shock, high educated entrants downgrade and low educated entrants cannot, the long-run consequences may be very different. This paper estimates the long-term effects of economic conditions at labor market entry on income and employment for high and low educated separately up to 40 years after graduation. I exploit regional variation in unemployment and proxy for time and location of labor market entry using birth region and nominal duration of education. For both high and low educated labor market entrants between 1971 and 1988, I find short-lived negative effects immediately after graduation. These negative effects on earnings and employment remain for high educated in the long run, but not for low educated who benefit in the long run. I hypothesize that high educated entrants downgrade during recessions, which shifts low educated entrants to other, less cyclical sectors. These sectors shield low educated entrants from later recessions, which can explain the long-run gains low educated recession entrants experience. I empirically test for this and indeed find that 20-40 years later low educated recession entrants are employed in less cyclical sectors
