Abstract: This paper studies the Italian labor market during the 1930s. Using monthly data both at the aggregate and sectoral level we evaluate the effects of the introduction, in 1934, of the 40 hours working week on the demand for labor. The results support the view that the reduction of the level of standard hours can be effective in stimulating employment provided that it does not imply an increase in hourly wage rates.
