Abstract

El artículo analiza el origen de las diferencias salariales por razón de sexo en España desde una perspectiva comparada con otros países europeos a partir del uso de microdatos empresa-trabajador armonizados procedentes de la Encuesta Europea de Estructura Salarial 1995. Se constata que las mujeres españolas están segregadas en establecimientos de bajos salarios en mayor medida que las de otros países europeos y que esta circunstancia resulta agravada por una elevada dispersión salarial entre establecimientos, lo que revela que el diferencial salarial por sexo comparativamente elevado que se da en el mercado de trabajo español está muy influido por factores asociados al establecimiento donde prestan sus servicios los trabajadores.
