The concept of dual labor markets refers to the division of the economy into two basic segments that operate according to different principles, with little mobility between them. The primary segment consists of good jobs that pay relatively high wages and provide comparatively good working conditions, high opportunities for advancement, and especially employment stability. Jobs in the secondary segment, by contrast, are low-paying, have poor working conditions and few chances for advancement, and are characterized by insecurity and high turnover.
