Shirking or Productive Schmoozing: Wages and the Allocation of Time at Work.
Hamermesh, Daniel S.
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v43 n3 spec iss p121S-33S Feb 1990
Detailed diaries from two time use studies (1975-1981) were analyzed to examine how use of time on the job affects earnings. Additional time spent on breaks at work raises earnings, but not to the same extent as additional time spent working. Effects differed for union and nonunion workers. Eliminating breaks entirely would be counterproductive. (SK)
