Labor Market Disadvantage and The Experience of Recurrent Poverty
People occupy different segments of the labor market. Those on the inside often have permanent contracts with training and personal development opportunities with their employers, while those in the periphery often have temporary or unstable contracts and less opportunity for advancement. These peripheral workers are often excluded from social arrangements taken for granted by other employees and are not only marginalized within the labor market, but in other areas as well. This paper analyses longitudinal individual data from Great Britain (the British Household Panel Survey) and Germany (The Socio-Economic Panel) from 1999 to 2005 and explores the relationship between segmentation in the labor market and its longer term implications for recurrent poverty experience. Statistical modelling is employed to show how being an outsider in the job market affects poverty in future years and how the effects differ between Germany and Great Britain.
