Abstract

Short-run shocks to employment can have long-run adverse effects on workers. Does access to community college ease adjustment to these labor market shocks? Which workers benefit the most from returning to education and is there scope for policy to better target any benefits? I address these questions using administrative data from Texas over the course of the Great Recession using a combination of design-based and structural methods.
