The economies and labor markets of the United States and Canada share many similarities and exist inexorably linked with one another.
Given this interconnection, one might expect public employment policies in either country to respond similarly to labor market conditions. But is this the case in the area of employment and compensation risk? Are there substantial differences between the U.S. and Canada, e.g., in the areas of unemployment benefits and health insurance, that impact the risk experienced by workers in either country? And is the level of risk experienced by those workers increasing?
The contributors to this book investigate the compensation and employment risks for U.S. and Canadian workers. They examine both wage and nonwage aspects of compensation, and whether workers in the U.S. or Canada face more job-related risks. They also seek to identify trends in risk bearing and whether they differ by country.
