Employer Size-wage Effects in Australia
The study examines rising employer size-wage effects in the Australian labour market between 1993 - a period when the effects of decentralization in wage determination was starting to be felt - and 2001 - after the effects of structural changes had become more fully manifested. The findings indicate that most of the increase in the employer size-wage gap between large and medium-sized employers can be explained by changes in returns to characteristics rather than by changes in the skill mix. In addition changes in labour market structure - perhaps associated with decentralization in wage setting - captured by the intercept coefficients caused the employer size-wage gap to increase for males and decrease for females.
