Teammate effects on pay
This paper explores the question of whether a worker's pay is affected by the attributes of co-workers. Using data from the NBA on players who have switched teams, it is found that teammate attributes do influence an individual's pay. Comparisons to the NHL suggest that differential co-worker effects reflect the nature of complementarity in different production environments.
