Description:

This paper explains that the article by Andrew Bernard and J. Bradford Jensen 'Firm Structure, Multinationals, and Manufacturing Plant Deaths' in "The Review of Economics and Statistics" describes how the multinational or national status of a firm will affect labor demand and the labor market. The article is a warning to workers employed in smaller, domestic firms and yet shows that merely being part of a multinational structure is not a guarantee of job stability. The paper relates that this article demonstrates how the demand for labor can be adversely affected by forces beyond the worker's control, such as the status of the entity with which she is employed, and that a healthy economy does not necessarily mean that the demand for labor will increase for all firms.
