The main purpose of this essay is to examine the influence of student loans on applicants’ wages and job-seeking period after graduation; simultaneously, to know well about the mediating effect of bargaining power.
In this study, the data comes from the project entrusted by Ministry of Labor. Through data analysis by ordinal regression models, the results are summarized as below:
(i) There is a significant negative effect of student loans on wage, when bargaining power is a mediator. This study concludes that students with student loans are less likely to compete for salary and benefits when looking for a job after graduation, and their initial salary is competitively lower.
(ii) There is no significant effect of student loans on job-search period, when bargaining power is a mediator. This study concludes that students with student loans would not shorten the job-seeking period through bargaining power. It might be related to the unit of job-seeking period that the interviewee filled in as 'month' rather than 'week'.
