Multiple job holdings: the artist’s labor supply approach
Topic(s): artists' labour markets
Keywords:  Artist - labour market - labour supply - cultural economics - data
This paper presents a generalization of the static labor supply model, in which an individual may hold two jobs, one of which brings utility in itself; we term it “artistic job”. Additionally, we allow for earnings in the artistic job to be non linear in hours dedicated to it. Two strands of literature relate to this problem, the “moonlighting” or dual job holding, and the artists’ labor supply literature.
