  • Abstract Long working hours have been one of the policy issues that the Taiwanese
    government intends to address recently. This paper sets up a dynamic stochastic
    general equilibrium model to discuss the macroecomonic effects of working
    hour regulations. Decreasing working hours tends to decrease labor income
    and output, but it also increases household’s welfare because leisure
    rises. When welfare is measured by consumption alone, reduced working
    hours, however, lower welfare because of falling consumption. Finally, we
    find the macroeconomic effects of increasing mandatory overtime premium is
    qualitatively the same to those of decreasing working hours, which decreases
    labor income and output.
