The evolution of wage structure in Japan
AbstractIn comparison with the external wage structures of more economically advanced countries, almost every kind of wage differential is much wider in Japanese industries. In addition, the internal wage structure in many firms and industries is, to a large extent, a function of the age distribution of the work force, since wages increase with length of service with the employer. The shaping of this pattern of wage relationships, which has prevailed in Japanese industry throughout most of the period since World War I, is traced in this article as an integral aspect of Japan's development from feudalism to a modern capitalist economy.
