Team Production Effects on Earnings

Idson, Todd

The effects of team production on earnings is examined using the 1973 Quality of Employment Survey. I find that the earnings of nonunion workers are positively related to (1) team size, (2) the extent to which supervisors encourage team work, and (3) the helpfulness of members of the team. These results are robust to controls for establishment size, characteristics of the worker, and both industry and occupation.
