This chapter studies the political support for employment protection. It is shown to be stronger, the larger the employed's rents. Another result is that if employment protection is the sole instrument, and is a continuous variable, its welfare‐maximizing level is strictly positive. However, that level is lower than the one that the employed want to choose. Also, a more intense process of obsolescence reduces the support for employment protection.
