Maarten, my y1 is people's age started to work, y2 is years of schooling,
what I want to get is the joint effect when people started to enter the
labor market one year later and receive one more year of schooling. 

But I didn't understand why "constraining the effects to be equal" could
compute the joint effect, could you explain it more explicitly?

Thank you in advance.
