We find that negative financial shocks trigger second job holding, and that second jobs are not a measure to smooth labour supply… 
Multiple Job Holding as a Strategy for Skills Diversification and Labour Market Mobility
The inter-related dynamics of dual job-holding, human capital and occupational choice between primary and secondary jobs are investigated, using a panel sample (1991-2005) of UK employees from the
