Technological change and non-pecuniary working conditions

This project analyzes how digital technologies (DTs) affect non pecuniary (NP) working conditions and thus the occupational choices of women vs. men. One of the objectives of the projet is to deepen our understanding of how NTs affect the joint evolution of wages and working conditions. The importance of this issue has been amplified by the COVID-19 crisis, as employers abd workers have dramtically increased their use of DTs to promote telecommuting and limit human contact in the workplace. By exploiting the matched employer-employee components of the working conditions survey, we will be able to accurately identify the effect of the diffusion of DNs on working conditions as well as its impact on: (i) the relationship between NP working conditions and wages; (ii) occupational choices by gender.
