Abstract

This study extends the analysis on the inter-industry propensity to strike found in Leigh (1983) by (1) developing a more elaborate model, (2) developing proxies for all the parameters of the model, and (3) testing the modified model on two new data sets. The results suggest that strikes are more frequent in hazardous industries employing few women and where the average level of schooling is low. In addition, the evidence suggests strikes and wages may be simultaneously determined.
