Die relative Bezahlung der Hochqualifizierten in Staat und Privatwirtschaft: Deutschland, 1977-2011

  • Corneo, Giacomo

Dieser Beitrag schildert die Entwicklung der relativen Bezahlung der Hochqualifizierten in Staat und Privatwirtschaft in Westdeutschland seit 1977. Es zeigt sich, dass seit ca. 1987 die relative Bezahlung der Hochqualifizierten im öffentlichen Dienst im Vergleich zur Privatwirtschaft massiv zurückgegangen ist: Gegenüber vergleichbaren Stellen in der Privatwirtschaft beträgt der relative Rückgang zwischen 25 % und 55 %. Dieser beträchtliche Verlust an Wettbewerbsfähigkeit seitens des öffentlichen Dienstes suggeriert, dass in dieser Zeit eine bedeutsame Verschiebung bei der Befriedigung von Bedürfnissen stattgefunden hat: von sozialen hin zu privaten Bedürfnissen.
