It might well be that one intervention raises employment substantially, albeit at low wages, whereas another intervention brings fewer workers into better jobs. By the same token, it is important to consider possible side effects on outcomes other than the primary ones that attract immediate policy attention. For instance, participation in a wage subsidy program may bring the unemployed participants back into employment successfully, but at the expense of accepting poor working conditions. Furthermore, qualitatively different outcomes might be affected by measures which are competing for a share of the budget.
It was stated above that whenever a sample is used to estimate a population average, the answer given by the estimate will unlikely be exactly the population parameter itself. Instead, the estimate can only give an approximation to the true parameter, since it has been derived on the basis of only a subset of all members of the population. Moreover, although a successful estimation strategy requires that, as the sample taken from the population becomes larger and larger, the approximation becomes more and more exact, it does not mean that one will ever receive the correct answer in any given estimation attempt.
Nevertheless, the increased labor supply enables a better bargaining position for the employer, and thereby reduces the real wages. A better matching efficiency tends to increase employment, whereas the effect on the real wage is ambiguous (Calmfors 1994). Furthermore, ALMPs may raise the productivity and skills of participants in order to make them more competitive. Participation in training measures and employment programs may help to increase the participants’ human capital and to adjust the skills of a participant to the needs of the labor market, which will increase their employability.
