Abstract

A l'aide d'une methode de decomposition par regression, on constate que, pendant les annees 80, la croissance du niveau de scolarite relatif des travailleurs ages a compte pour environ 25 % de l'elargissement de l'ecart salarial selon l'age entre les hommes et les femmes. Au cours des annees 90, l'evolution du niveau de scolarite relatif a figure dans une proportion bien plus forte (pres de la moitie chez les hommes et plus des trois quarts chez les femmes) dans la hausse beaucoup plus faible de l'ecart salarial selon l'age. On constate egalement que, pendant les annees 80, les aspirations salariales hebdomadaires ont diminue chez les jeunes travailleurs de tous les niveaux de scolarite, tant chez les hommes que chez les femmes (de 2 % a 16 %, selon le niveau de scolarite). Chez les travailleurs ages, par contre, les resultats sont variables : les aspirations salariales hebdomadaires ont progresse chez certains et recule chez d'autres.
