Abstract

FROTA, Marisa Guilherme da et al. PARTICIPATION AND PROVISION OF WORKING HOURS IN THE SECONDARY JOB MARKET: AN ANALYSIS OF THE AGRICULTURAL SECTOR IN BRAZIL. Rev. econ. contemp. [online]. 2019, vol.23, n.3, e192337.  Epub Nov 25, 2019. ISSN 1980-5527.  https://doi.org/10.1590/198055272337.

The present study aims at investigating the likelihood of participation and the provision of working hours in the secondary job market for workers in the agricultural sector. The analytical focus relies on socioeconomic attributes of workers and jobs. The study used data extracted from National Household Sample Survey (PNAD), conducted by the IBGE, for the year 2014. To achieve the proposed objectives, the study used the following econometric models: a Probit model, for the decision to participate in a multi-job market; a Tobit model, for the allocation of working hours; and a Double-Hurdle model, which jointly estimated the two equations. Evidence shows that among the main determinants of decision-making in participating in a secondary job market featured experience, education and the condition of being head of family. As for the decision-making concerning the quantity of hours employed in a second job, main determinants were found to be experience, schooling, being married, having children, and having stability at the first job. As for the Double-Hurdle model, the variable for stability in the first job behaved as expected, that is, it decreases the probability of participating in the secondary job market.

Keywords : second job; agricultural sector; Double-Hurdle.
