Women’s Sexual Orientation and Labour Market Outcomes
AbstractThis study provides evidence on the relationship between lesbian women and their hiring prospects by employing the Correspondence Test for Greece. The data analyzed supports the findings of previous experiments and indicates that hiring discrimination against lesbians is present. More importantly, entry wage differentials assigned are not consistent with the ascendant empirical claims that lesbians have higher market earnings. Our findings suggest that currently lesbians both anticipate and encounter job discrimination.
