The Effects of Overeducation on Productivity in Germany: The Firms' Viewpoint.
Buchel, Felix
Economics of Education Review, v21 n3 p263-75 Jun 2002
Examines why German firms hire overeducated employees in low-skill jobs and pay them more than correctly educated ones. Finds that overeducated employees are more productive, enjoy better health, participate more in on-the-job training, and have longer firm tenure than their correctly educated colleagues.
