La présence syndicale réduit-elle la discrimination salariale à l'encontre des femmes ? Un examen sur l'année 2002
AbstractThe Roudy  and Génisson  Acts on gender discrimination should reduce progressively the wage discrimination against women. We perform a study on year 2002 which allows seeing whether the situation has been changing over the decade 1992-2002. We examine both the regular hourly wage and the total hourly wage which includes overtime payments and bonuses. We find two main results. First considering the regular wage we find that the presence of union representatives reduces wage discrimination for executive women but would increase it for blue-collar women Second, considering the total wage, we find that the presence of union representatives tends to increase the wage discrimination against women.
