How Occupational Licensing Impacts the Public Sector Labor Market

New research from economists at the University of Minnesota examines the effects of occupational licensing on the public sector labor market; the study uncovers the impacts on key labor market outcomes, like wages, hours worked and employment in the public sector. The Labor Market Effects of Occupational Licensing in the Public Sector from June 2023 finds that being in a licensed occupation in the public sector raises wages by about 6% and increases hours worked, but reduces employment. The authors of the report conclude that “overall, our estimates suggest that the social welfare effects of licensing in the public sector are like those for the whole sample, and they generally result in a welfare loss in the public sector.”
