Fine tuning or re-skilling? Educational strategies of prime-aged displaced workers / by Tomasz Handler and René Morissette. : CS36-28-0001/2022-1-5E-PDF

"While a significant literature has documented the substantial and persistent earnings losses often experienced by displaced workers, relatively little is known about the educational strategies that prime-aged displaced workers use to cope with job loss. Specifically, the extent to which laid off Canadian workers undergo re-skilling - entering new fields of study after losing their jobs rather than simply upgrading their skills and remaining within their initial fields of study - is currently unknown. This study fills that information gap. It shows that, among all prime-aged postsecondary-educated workers who lost their jobs from 2009 to 2013, close to 10% entered postsecondary education (PSE) in the three years following job loss. Of those who entered PSE after job loss, almost 60% changed fields of study. This study also shows that displaced men and women who went back to school after job loss and who had similar initial fields of study tended to choose different fields of study after displacement. In particular, displaced men were less likely to move into health-related fields of study than displaced women"--Abstract, page 1.
