Determinants of Labor Force Participation of Low-Income Workers: Review of the Literature.
Pinkerton, James R.
Advances that have been made in knowledge about a number of situational dimensions that affect the income and labor market activity of disadvantaged workers are indicated in this literature review. The need to learn more about the force that make it possible for some workers to break out of the cycle of poverty while others remain at the botton is mentioned. Some of the major variables considered are rural vs. urban background, race-ethnicity, education, age, wife's educational level, wage rates and salaries, marriage, family size, other income, health problems, housing, type of industry, training, welfare, and illegal activity. The need for studies that will synthesize the hypotheses presented by looking at the strengths and patterns of empirical relationships, which form when all of the situational variables in the review are simultaneously analyzed, was indicated.
