If either too high labour costs or the above-mentioned co-ordination failures (Dreze 1997, and Shadman-Mehta and Sneessens 1998) can explain unemployment persistence, job competition can cause heterogeneity in the exit rates. The idea is that in periods of high unemployment, high skilled workers fill vacancies intended for lower skilled workers and/or employers raise the required skill level of vacancies even if the job requirements are unchanged (van Ours and Ridder 1995). If this were the diagnosis of persistent unemployment, policies stimulating economic growth, be it by an across the board reduction of labour costs (Daveri and Tabelini 1997) or by a "two-handed growth strategy using both demand- and supply-side policy instruments" (Shadman-Mehta and Sneessens 1998), are sufficient to cope with unemployment persistence and to simultaneously improve the relative position of the less skilled workers in the labour market.

According these authors, a succession of negative economic shocks , combined with the higher mentioned disemployability effects has reduced the effective labour supply and consequently the rise of persistent long-term unemployment during the eighties. When economic activity resumes, the long-term unemployed are no longer effective candidates to fill job vacancies, which leads to labour shortages even when unemployment is high . Moreover, the lack of competitiveness of the unemployed outsiders reinforces the bargaining power of the employed insiders in their demand for salary increases, thereby tempering employment growth.

These lower rates are the result of the fiscal treatment of baby-sitting costs for young children. 3. All of these amounts are expressed in inflation-adjusted Canadian dollars (Canadian dollars from 1986). 4. In these paths, the " holes" are assumed to correspond to non-participation spells. 5. The preliminary nonparametric analysis is particularly important for examining the welfare exit rates since it has been verified that the parametric analysis of these rates is sensitive to the choice of a particular functional form (see Blank [1989]).
