Spillovers of Equal Treatment in Wage Offers
AbstractWe analyse a labour matching model with wage posting, where ?re?flecting institutional constraints - ?fi?rms cannot differentiate their wage offers within certain subsets of workers. Inter alia, we fi?nd that the presence of impersonal wage offers leads to wage compression, which propagates to the wages for high productivity workers who receive personalised offers.
