Abstract

Secondary jobholding is a persistent phenomenon in both Germany and the UK. Using panel data from the BHPS and the SOEP, reduced form participation equations are estimated for male and female workers separately. Whereas the results vary across gender and countries, there is support for both main theoretical strands, i.e. for the ‘hours-constraints’ motive and, though less clear, for the ‘heterogeneous-jobs’ motive.
