Abstract

[fre] Les équations de salaire et la perception subjective des conditions de travail : . approche en coupe instantanée sur données françaises . par Juan A. Canada Vicinay . En partant des mauvais résultats des estimations en coupe instantanée des équations hédoniques de salaires, cet article distingue, d'une part, les caractéristiques des emplois selon la manière objective ou subjective dont elles sont perçues par les travailleurs qui les supportent, et d'autre part, introduit les segmentations du marché qui limitent la capacité de la mobilité à régler la compensation des différences. La modélisation de ces deux aspects permet de formuler et de corriger les biais de subjectivité et d'appariement. Le premier considère l'état d'esprit des travailleurs (plus on a un sentiment défavorable envers le travail moins on le supporte et plus on accorde de l'importance aux facteurs gênants et aux aspects insalubres du poste). Le second prend en compte les travailleurs défavorisés, qui supportent en permanence des pénibilités non-compensées par le salaire. [eng] Wage Equations and Subjective Perceptions of Working Conditions: . a Cross-Sectional Approach Using French Data . by Jaun A. Canada Vicinay . With the poor results of cross-sectional estimates of hedonic wage equations in mind, this paper develops a two-way model. It distinguishes job characteristics according to workers' objective and subjective perceptions of their working conditions and then introduces the market segmentation that limits the possibilities for the differences to be compensated through mobility. By modelling these two aspects, we can formulate and correct the biases arising from subjectivity and mismatches. The first bias stems from the workers' state of mind. Indeed, the more one dislikes one's job, the more one finds its disagreeable and unhealthy aspects oppressive and difficult to bear. The second bias stems from workers being segregated into jobs where harsh working conditions are not compensated for by higher pay. The new findings are in full agreement with the theoretical proposals put forward.
