Essais sur l'offre de travail et l'entrée dans la vie adulte : application à la France

Abstract : This thesis aims to study the evolution of the labor supply of individuals at the entry into adulthood. It consists of two major themes. First of all, we discuss the labor supply decisions of young adults and the links existing between labor supply and family environment as well as public policies. Second, we discuss the impact of the first birth on the labor supply of mothers and fathers. We find that the family environment is a factor of inequality between young adults and that the implementation of minimum income policies would reduce these inequalities. With regard to the birth of a child, it is mainly educated women who are penalized at the wage level over the short and medium terms. It seems that public policies, but also firms, have an important role to play in mothers' return to work behaviors.
