The paper ‘Job accession, mobility and job-to-job transition in the Egyptian and Jordanian labor market’ by Chaima’a Yassine, Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne and Paris School of Economics follows labor market patterns over time and track its response over varying business cycle fluctuations, markets shocks or contrasting market variables that might lead to further research analysis.
The study finds that both the Egyptian and Jordanian labor have very low accession and job-job transition rates. Having said that, the Jordanian labor market have better terms of job mobility when compared to Egyptian market.
Yassine also looks at different employment sectors within both labor markets. And she argues that trends show the private sector in Egypt whether formal or informal have higher job accessing and job separation rates, unlike the case with the Jordanian markets which where the public sectors plays the larger role
