Alexandra ROULET (INSEAD) – “Geographic Mobility and the Gender Wage Gap : Evidence from a Randomized Experiment in France”
Abstract: Female job seekers are on average much less geographically mobile than their male counterparts and search for lower wages. Through a randomized experiment on 20,000 French job seekers, we show that a simple nudge treatment about geographic mobility can significantly increase the mobility of a subgroup of females. The treatment also leads them to search for higher wages. Our treatment consists of an advertisement message about financial incentives for geographic mobility offered by the Public Employment Service.
