This paper investigates the role of staggered wages and sticky prices in explaining stylized
labor market facts. We build on a partial equilibrium search and matching model and expand
the model to a general equilibrium model with sticky prices and/or staggered wages. We show
that the core model creates too much volatility in response to a technology shock. The sticky
price model outperforms the staggered wage model in terms of matching volatilities, while the
combination of both rigidities matches the data reasonably well.
