Why do women's wages increase so slowly throughout their career? A dynamic model of statistical discrimination
The aim of this paper is to explain the growing wage differentials between men and womenduring their working careers. We provide a dynamic model of statistical discrimination, whichintegrates specific human capital decisions: on-the-job training investment and wages areendogenously determined. We reveal a small wage differential at the beginning of women'scareer, followed by a larger wage differential; this is partly due to a lower level of human capitalinvestment by women and partly because firms smooth training costs between different periods.
