Relative Wage Determination Among Industries: Some Theoretical and Empirical Results.
Wachter, Michael L.
This report is concerned with cyclical variation in the relative wages of industries. The determination of relative wages is investigated in three different contexts. The first area deals with a broad overview of the relative wage model where the basic elements are introduced. Second, a more complete relative wage model is developed in the context of the estimation of relative wage equations for each of the two-digit industries. Finally, the relative wage model is tested in a disaggregated, local labor market framework. The data for this study are unpublished wage surveys of firms in the Boston area during the period 1958 through 1969. (NTIS)
