Executive Summary

The authors propose a study on the interdependence between 'Old' and 'New' member states, focusing on the labor markets of the enlarged EU over the period 1995- 2005. Increased accessibility of detailed sector level labor statistics allows them to shed some new light on the interactions between EU-15 and NMS-5 skill structures and employment levels. They consider trade based linkages and interaction mechanisms across 13 sectors. They focus on the relation between domestic high and low skill employment and foreign wage conditions regarding the two categories of workers.
