The Effects of Human Capital and Job Characteristics on Pay.
Schumann, Paul L.; And Others
Journal of Human Resources, v29 n2 p481-503 Spr 1994
Using data on 271 jobs, a study showed that both worker characteristics (education, months employed or unemployed) and job characteristics (skills, mental and physical demands, tools) are determinants of pay. Females tend to hold jobs of lower value to the organization, which explains part of the male-female pay differential. (SK)
