Abstract

En este trabajo se analizan las brechas salariales atribuibles al sexo y la etnicidad en Guatemala entre 2000 y 2006. Se hallan brechas salariales pronunciadas a lo largo tanto de dimensiones sexuales como étnicas. Las brechas salariales en Guatemala obedecen parcialmente a diferencias de características del capital humano, especialmente educación, entre grupos indígenas y no indígenas, y entre hombres y mujeres, lo que requiere la igualación de las oportunidades educacionales. Sin embargo, las brechas salariales son mayores de lo que predicen las diferencias educacionales, lo que hace pensar que la necesidad de campañas informativas para elevar la conciencia de la necesidad de igualdad de oportunidades en los mercados laborales.
