Determinants of individual wages in the Czech republic and Slovak republic firms
AbstractThe paper investigates individual wage determinants in context of classic human capital methodology. Paper tries to confront economic assumptions with empirical findings for the Czech Republic and presents that in view of labour market during late-transition period. Czech labour force is relatively well educated and trained, price of labour is low to be competitive to developed economies. Education of employee plays very important role in wage determination and there are significant increase in returns to human capital during all transition process. But working in some occupation has major individual intensity of influence on wage level than level of education. Education and occupation are strongly correlated each other but nevertheless occupation plays major role in wage determination process. Comparing other results with hypothesis, paper concludes that main assumptions are confirmed by derived findings. Paper supports that wage-age profile, regional differences or gender wage gap are becoming similar to other developed countries.
