LIfBi Lectures: Subsidized small jobs and maternal labor market outcomes in the long run

This lecture investigates whether incentives generated by public policies contribute to motherhood penalties. Specifically, we study the effects of subsidized employment, the German Minijobs, whichare frequently taken up by first-time mothers upon labor market return. Using a combination of propensity score matching and an event study applied to administrative data, we compare the longrun child penalties of mothers who started out in a Minijob employment versus unsubsidized employment after birth. We find adverse unintended consequences of the small jobs subsidy program for maternal earnings, which persist up to 10 years after first birth.
