Returns to Seniority among Public School Teachers.
Ballou, Dale; Podgursky, Michael
Journal of Human Resources, v37 n4 p892-912 Fall 2002
Review of public school compensation policies and comparison of teacher salaries with those of other white-collar workers found that public schools spend the same percentage of wage-rewarding seniority as other employers. A steeper wage-tenure profile reduces turnover, but turnover costs are likely not high enough to make this an optimal use of resources. (Contains 25 references.) (Author/SK)
