Male-Female Wage Differentials: Discrimination or Quality Differentials?

Authors: Dimitrios A. Giannias

This paper presents a quality theory for labor that is offered for obtaining estimates of the demand for labor quality and testing whether there is feminist wage discrimination and whether labor quality depends on sex. The approach is instructive for understanding the workings of a hedonic labor market framework, offers closed form solutions, and allows the introduction of nonlinearities in the analysis. Keywords: hedonic pricing, quality differentials, product quality, labor quality, equilibrium model JEL Classification: J2, J3, D11
