Researchers Rosella Gardecki and David Neumark conducted a study of 2,844 people who participated in the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth that appears in the journal "Industrial and Labor Relations". The study shows that young men who jump from one job to another in their early years after school don't seem to be hurting their later wages, a new national study suggests. If anything, men who stay in their first occupation or industry may earn 5 to 7 percent less than their peers who have moved on, according to the results. However, the effect of job stability on young women workers is less clear, researchers say. Young men probably begin employment in lower-wage industries and occupations, so those that stay there may eventually earn less. The study showed that women who show early job stability may have slightly higher wages than job-switchers-but no more than 2 percent. This may because of employers' concerns about commitment. Gardecki was quoted as saying.
