Most economists have tried to explain the use of variable pay in the context of incentive models. Although incentives may be a justification for a number of the variable pay contracts that are observed, incentives do not fit well with a number of other facts. An alternative story that relies on information and sorting seems to be consistent with some facts that are at odds with the incentive justification. Although sorting cannot explain all the facts, the focus on incentives almost to the exclusion of sorting and selection has misled researchers and created apparent empirical anomalies where none may exist.
THE BASELINE MODEL This section presents a model of the determination of the rights to control the work. We will refer to this as control of the work routine. By this, we mean such things as determining the duties, time, pace, and location of the work and the type of materials and equipment used. In general, this is thought of as organizing and scheduling the work and determining how it is carried out. 6 The model draws on Holmstrom and Milgrom (1994) who consider a wide spectrum of means to manage incentives.
Monitoring worker actions will be difficult for jobs with a high value of the analyze data variable. These jobs require mental tasks and do not lend themselves to direct observation of effort. Additionally, this suggests greater worker expertise in the job. The baseline model implies a greater incidence of independent contractors for this type of job. A similar outcome is expected for the making judgments variable. Jobs requiring analysis and decision-making imply mental effort not verifiable by monitoring and also may imply greater worker expertise.
