    The paper investigates the relationship between the education level of employees and certain characteristics of the labour market in Greece. The paper studies male-female wage differentials depending on their education level across the wage distribution and applies a variant of the selection-adjusted Oaxaca and Blinder decomposition method to explain the components of the wage differentials. The results suggest that male- female wage differences can be identified in Greece. For high education level employees a higher unexplained portion of the wage differential is observed at the top rather than the bottom of the wage distribution; for low education level employees a higher unexplained portion of the wage differential is revealed at the bottom rather than the top of the distribution.
