Job Tenure and Joblessness of Displaced Workers.
Valletta, Robert G.
Journal of Human Resources, v26 n4 p726-41 Fall 1991
Data from the Displaced Worker Survey found that, for men, the duration of joblessness increases with the length of job tenure (15 years or more), consistent with the hypothesis that male workers base reservation wages on factors such as accumulated human capital that raise current wages more than potential wage offers.
