Abstract

The determinants of British white-collar pay are investigated using two surveys of establishments and four surveys of employees. It is found that, just as for manual employees, wages are highest in large foreign-owned workplaces with low proportions of part-time and female workers. There is some evidence that pay is depressed by external unemployment, but little evidence that it is affected by the establishment's financial performance. Copyright 1990 by Royal Economic Society.
