Description

In this Issue

  • To boost job creation, the labour market role of big multinationals
  • Large R&D investing companies operating in Denmark act as agents of skill upgrading, rather than destroying mid-skill jobs through job polarisation
  • However, workers employed by these companies tend to move within such elite (i.e. remaining in the ‘Champion’s League’) rather than moving to other non-multinational indigenous firms
  • Scoreboard companies, domestic and foreign, pay higher wages for a given occupation compared to other firms; they also show a higher wage growth
