30) for every type i. The argument that this inequality is unambiguously positive is the following. Assume that there was no change in unemployment so that we were at an unchanged point (N i , v if ) on the zero-profit curve and firms have returned to the original point that they were at before. The proportional payroll tax, taken by itself, has two effects. 3 per cent increase in output through reduced quits alone. ” The equalization of unemployment rate result depends on the assumption that the marginal training cost in manhours, β, is the same across all types of workers.

1) is an implicit function of r ∗ at each Li : vih L¯ Li ∗ w = ϒ r − ρ, ¯ yi L ; ϒ1 < 0, ϒ2 < 0. 2), we obtain a reduced-form labor supply relation in the steady state: Li 1 − = L¯ θ+ρ r ∗ +θ ϒ r ∗ − ρ, 1+ θ+ρ r ∗ +θ Li L¯ −1 . 6) This equation uniquely determines the labor supply in manhours and is independent of the tax and subsidy rates. It is also independent of i . To understand this result, we notice that the labor demand curve in ¯ v f ) plane is infinitely elastic. With wealth and hence yw given, the (Li / L, i i the labor supply schedule is upward sloping.
