    Using microdata to analyze the gender pay gap in ten industrialized nations, this chapter focuses on the role of wage structure — the prices of labour market skills — in influencing the gender gap. It shows that the wage structure is extremely important in explaining why the US gender gap is higher than that in most other industrialized countries. Geographical Wage Differentials. There is a wide literature dealing with geographical wage differentials. Following the neoclassical assumption of clearing labour markets, where there is a more attractive area to live in and if labour mobility is perfect, then more and more workers will move to this area which in turn will increase the supply of labour in this area and in turn depress wages.

    Since the mids when the urban reforms were implemented in earnest, wage inequality has widened (Appleton et al. ; Knight and Song ). During the period of the planned economy, one of the objectives of the Chinese government that was supported ideologically by Mao was to narrow the gender-wage gap.   The ongoing battle over gender equality has turned the question of the relative pay of women and men into quite the political football. Over the last few years, defenders of markets, including me, have been on the offensive, arguing that the gender pay gap is in some sense a “myth.”More recently, critics have replied that it’s not a myth and that those who think it is a myth are peddling.

    research in the area was less convincing because all initial empirical analyses of gender wage differentials concentrated on data from to In these two decades, women’s wages grew not much more quickly than men’s, leading to no significant decline in the gender wage gap. Women in earned 59 cents on the dollar, yet in.   While the gender wage gap narrowed over the course of the 20th century, progress has largely stalled since the s. One reason may be women’s underrepresentation in well-remunerated, in-demand occupations such as computer science--a field where women’s representation has actually decreased over time.

Furthermore patterns of changes in educational wage differentials and overall wage inequality are much more divergent in the s and s than in the s.

Table 10 measures changes in overall wage inequality for men from (or the earliest year available) to (or the latest year available) in terms of the 90–10 log wage differential.

In this article we evaluate wage differentials in Italy combining gender and education perspectives. The main goal of this article is to verify whether the extent of the gender pay gap varies between highly- and low-educated workers, and whether or not the role played by gender differences in characteristics and in market rewards is similar in the two groups.

Depending upon Gender wage differentials book characteristics of their labour markets, factors producing wage differentials in those studies varied from race, gender, education, job status occupation, type of sector (public vs.

Wages in Construction, by Demographic Characteristics, Unionization, and Region Wages (excluding overtime pay, tips, and commissions) of construction workers vary by demographic characteristics (such as age, gender, race, ethnicity, and education), union status, and region, according to data collected by the Current Population Survey (CPS, see page 10).

CPS wage data are collected directly. Oaxaca () studies the gender wage differentials in the urban labor market. The unexplained gender wage gap, discrimination, is measured as the male-female wage ratio without discrimination ((WM/WF)0) subtracted from the observed male-female ratio (WM/WF) which is then divided by the male-female ratio without discrimination.

Wage differentialsIf labour markets are very competitive, with identical workers and perfect mobility of labour, wages will move towards the same equilibrium level.

However, in reality wages can differ greatly, even for the same job. A variety of different factors account for this, including the capital differencesSome jobs require lengthy training and education, and this.

Some of the relevant factors are listed below. Compensating wage differentials - higher pay can often be some reward for risk-taking in certain jobs, working in poor conditions and having to work unsocial hours.; A reward for human capital - in a competitive labour market equilibrium, wage differentials compensate workers for (opportunity and direct) costs of human capital acquisition.

Table 1 summarizes the Blau and Kahn findings in which the gender wage gaps in each country are compared with that of the USA. Column 2 reports the raw (log) wage differentials by country.

The wage gaps range from log points (approximately 26 percent) in Sweden to log points (approximately 49 percent) in the UK. This book provides new evidence on the magnitude and sources of pay inequalities between women and men in European countries and New Zealand on the basis of micro data.

Particular attention is devoted to job access and workplace practices, promotions and wage growth, sectoral affiliation and rent-sharing, and unobserved heterogeneity and dynamics.

In Louisiana, for instance, the gender pay gap is 31%, the largest wage gap in the nation. California has the smallest pay gap at 12%, with full-time, year-round working women making $ cents ($49, median) for a man's dollar ($55,). The gender wage gap is real, but it isn't all a story about discrimination.

Some of it is, no doubt, but some of the gender wage gap may be due to differences in preferences for job characteristics, and only one of those characteristics is the wage. through the logic of compensating differentials, hourly earnings on Uber vary predictably by.
