This 50th Celebratory Research in Labor Economics volume contains ten original and innovative articles each written by stellar senior scholars in labor economics, including a Nobel Laureate. Each article deals with an aspect of worker well-being addressing questions such as: What can epidemiologists learn from search and matching models? What advanced degrees yield the highest returns? How do occupational and safety risks on the job affect earnings? What are best practices in estimating gender discrimination? Has technology exacerbated the widening earnings distribution? How have bureaucrats overregulated the economy? Did Right to Work laws really decrease unionization? Why were undocumented immigrants able to return to work faster than natives during Covid-19? And, how does a husband's death impact a widow's use of time at home?
