There is evidence that workers' skills erode during periods of unemployment. This issue seems of particular concern now that unemployment duration has increased in the Great Recession. I argue that loss of skill during unemployment pool, and hence the output produced by new hires. Overall, job creation is too low, but contrary to conventional wisdom less so in recessions that in booms. The larger share of job-seekers with erode skills in the unemployment pool in recessions lowers the social cost of having a worker losing hers skills because it decreases the expected difference in productivity between a new hire and a job-seeker with eroded skills. As a consequence, everything else equal, loss of skill during unemployment may warrant procyclical emplyment subsidies.
