The results show that there remains an unexplained gender wage differential of approximately 11%; that is, if a person is male, he is likely to receive wages 11% higher than if that person were female. Therefore, according to this study, an unexplained gender wage differential does exist and is attributed to discrimination in the labor market.

The eight factors influencing the determination of wage rates are as follows: 1. Ability to Pay 2. Demand and Supply 3. Prevailing Market Rates 4. Cost of Living 5. Bargaining of Trade Unions 6. Productivity 7. Government Regulations 8. Cost of Training. The wage payment is an important factor influencing labour and management relations. Workers do not operate as individuals in the labor market, but rather as members of groups defined by their relationship to labor market structures, and labor market structures effectively limit the choices open to them: "Over significantly long pe- nods, job structures exist, and workers must live with them as best they can" (Harrison and Sum.

Geographical Wage Differentials. There is a wide literature dealing with geographical wage differentials. Following the neoclassical assumption of clearing labour markets, where there is a more attractive area to live in and if labour mobility is perfect, then more and more workers will move to this area which in turn will increase the supply of labour in this area and in turn depress wages.

S. Acharya constructs wage series: of agricultural workers for to ; and of factory, plantation and mines sectors for His main aim is to wage differentials and the Sudanese agricultural labour markets book upon the rising inequality in the distribution of gains in the economy: that unskilled/manual work fetches increasingly little compared to other work.

Examining wage differentialsCited by: 1. Some of the relevant factors are listed below. Compensating wage differentials - higher pay can often be some reward for risk-taking in certain jobs, working in poor conditions and having to work unsocial hours.; A reward for human capital - in a competitive labour market equilibrium, wage differentials compensate workers for (opportunity and direct) costs of human capital acquisition.

wage differential is really a hidden interest or rental charge, so that one cannot speak of bidding down the real value of peak wages. In fact, when labour commitment is not based on loan or land, the peak season wage rate for tied labour is typdcally above the market rate (Bardhan and Rudrap.

98). Classical economists argue that wages—the price of labor—are determined (like all prices) by supply and demand. They call this the market theory of wage determination. When workers sell their labor, the price they can charge is influenced by several factors on.

Wage and salary, income derived from human cally, wages and salaries cover all compensation made to employees for either physical or mental work, but they do not represent the income of the costs are not identical to wage and salary costs, because total labour costs may include such items as cafeterias or meeting rooms maintained for the convenience.

Economics Wage Differentials. The wage paid to workers varies greatly. These wage differentials are mostly the result of differences in worker ability and the workers' effort in performing the job, but may also result if the job is unionized, since the goal of labor unions is to increase compensation over and above what would otherwise be provided based on free market conditions.

Jacob Mincer () introduced the concept of "human capital" into labor economics and used it to explain wage differentials.

Becker further developed the human capital theory (). Wage Premia and Wage Differentials in the South African Labour Market, Haroon Bhorat 3 median wages. This is of course a result borne out in most earnings function analyses (see Bhorat & Leibbrandt,b and Schultz & Mwabu,).

It is important to note that even though individuals with a tertiary degree earn the most, their median wage is.

The basic idea of the “dual labor market” setup of Harris and Todaro () comes in on the labor supply side. Formal and informal labor markets are not seen as completely separated (which would amount to a simple labor market segmentation as discussed in Section ), but as connected through imperfect labor mobility.

With the wage. wage differentials emphasized the demand side of the labor market, focusing on industrial characteristics influencing the wage structure. The studies on wage differentials carried out during the sixties and early seventies followed the same line of research.

The studies by Rapping (), Masters (), and Kumar. In theory, wages are determined by supply and demand factors, and in theory, workers should be paid a wage equal to their marginal revenue product (MRP).

But, this classic theory of labour markets involves several assumptions: Labour markets are flexible, e.g. it is easy for workers to move job and take a higher paid job. A brief treatment of wage theory follows. For full treatment, see wage and salary. The subsistence theory of wages, advanced by David Ricardo and other classical economists, was based on the population theory of Thomas held that the market price of labour would always tend toward the minimum required for subsistence.

If the supply of labour increased, wages would fall, eventually. To see more clearly how Russia’s rural labour markets determine wages (and in our model of wage determination does not seek to estimate for example, the wage differential between 28 year.
