The Gender Pay Gap, Fringe Benefits, and Occupational Crowding.
Solberg, Eric; Laughlin, Teresa
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v48 n4 p692-708 Jul 1995

Including fringe benefits makes gender significant in only one occupational category. Crowding of one gender into an occupation appears the primary determinant of the pay gap. (SK)
