  1. Robust standard errors in parentheses
  2. All models are linear regressions on the sample of the active population. Columns 1–2 show the results of an LPM on employment probability, while columns 3–4 show the results of the linear regression on earnings. In columns 2 and 4, labour market entry fixed effects are included, too
  3. ***p < 0.01, **p < 0.05, *p < 0.1
