Gender pay differentials during the transition in Poland
AbstractThis paper assesses the relative economic welfare of women during the transition in Poland. After providing an account of gender differences in several labour market outcomes we analyse the male-female wage differential over the period 1993-97. We find that there is almost no change in the wage gap, that most of the explained portion of the wage gap may be attributed to industrial and occupational segregation, and that a substantial portion of the wage gap remains unexplained. We briefly discuss possible socio-economic explanations for our findings. Copyright (c) The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, 2003..
