En el presente trabajo se analizan las repercusiones de la incorporación femenina en el mercado laboral uruguayo, sobre las remuneraciones percibidas por mujeres y hombres entre 1986 y 1997. En primer lugar, se procede a contrastar la Hipótesis de Concentración planteada por Bergmann (1971 y 1974), según la cual la concentración de las mujeres en unas pocas ocupaciones, como consecuencia de la discriminación, conduce a la disminución de los salarios de los trabajadores que se desempeñan en dichas labores. Posteriormente, se realiza la descomposición de las diferencias salariales por sexo siguiendo la metodología planteada por Macpherson y Hirsch (1995), con el fin de identificar la parte que es discriminatoria y aquella que es justificada.
