Shevchuk, Andrey; Strebkov, Denis; Davis, Shannon N. – Journal of Education and Work, 2019
Previous research examining skill mismatch in the labour market has ignored potential implications for workers outside of the work environment. We argue that the psychological strain that the discrepancy between worker's skills and job requirements wields on workers spills over into the non-work sphere, increasing work-life conflict. This study…
