The Full-Time Workweek in the United States, 1900-1970
Kniesner, Thomas J.
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, 30, 1, 3-15, Oct 76
The average workweek of full-time workers declined by 35 percent between 1900 and 1940, but has not changed significnatly since then, and the secular rigidity of the full-time workweek remains. An expanded model which incorporates the effects of growth in education and in the female wage explains the post-1940 secular trend. (Editor/HD)
