Structuring the Supply of Workers
In Chapter 3 we identified a number of pressures which operated on employers to determine the number of workers employed. We now turn to a consideration of the factors which influence the supply of labour. In view of our concern with understanding the operation of the youth labour market the emphasis is on the supply of new entrants, especially school-leavers. We argue that the institutional structures which regulate the supply of workers, notably the educational and training arrangements, provide external constraints which influence employers’ recruitment practices and the type of labour recruited for diferent types of jobs.
