Hourly Earnings of Female Part-time versus Full-time Employees
Investigations of the earnings gap between males and females in the British labor market have highlighted the role of part-time employment in women's working lives. The vast majority of part-time jobs are held by women and, at sometime in their labor-market experience, most women hold part-time jobs. This paper attempts to determine the extent to which part-time employment lowers the hourly earnings of women. The approach adopted involves decomposing the part-time/full-time wage gap into that part attributable to the characteristics of the employees and that part attributable to the jobs themselves. Allowance is made for the endogeneity of the part-time work decision. Copyright 1988 by Blackwell Publishers Ltd and The Victoria University of Manchester
