Cost-Sharing of General and Specific Training with Depreciation of Human Capital.
Pichler, Eva
Economics of Education Review, v12 n2 p117-24 1993
Investigates why employers (particularly those valuing technical progress as important for performance) share general training costs and returns. Workers stay with a firm paying a wage below their opportunity wage if it continually provides additional training so that the prospect of future wages outweighs the short-run gain from quitting and obtaining similar employment elsewhere.
