Project The research aims to document how language skills mismatches are at work in urban low-skilled labour markets in general, and the market for domestic workers in particular. The study applies this problem to the Brussels region. As is the case in many urban areas, the Brussels-Capital Region combines high levels of low-skilled labour supply with high levels of labour demand. A spatial mismatch may exist here, but a complicating factor is that the demand by households for low-skilled labour in the hinterland is partly in another language (Dutch) than the lingua franca spoken in Brussels (French). Concurrently the market for domestic work is strongly subsidized in a system of service vouchers, but probably black market employment is still strongly prevalent. The study documents potential problems and rigidities arising from the hypothesized linguistic mismatch, and the interaction between the informal and official labour markets.
