LABOR EXCLUSION AND THE EROSION OF CITIZENSHIP RESPONSIBILITIES [March 2015]
by Ronconi, Lucas; Zarazaga, Rodrigo
[full-text, 25 pages]
This paper shows that workers who do not receive legally mandated benefits due to employer noncompliance have a negative view not only of their employers, as has been documented, but also of the State. Those workers believe that the State did not protect their rights, and hence they feel fewer obligations to comply with their duties as citizens. Using a list experiment, as well as household data from nine Latin American countries, the paper shows that non-registered workers are less likely to obey the law, pay taxes and vote compared to registered workers.
