dc.description.abstractThis paper seeks to document and analyse changes in the distribution of wages andemployment in the transition countries since the collapse of communism. Most countriesexperienced an increase in wage inequality during the initial shock of the transition. Proximatecauses of this increase seem to be sectoral shifts in employment and increasing inter-industrywage differentials.In Eastern Europe, where economic growth has restarted, there have been further increases inincome inequality. These changes are arguably the best guide to future trends in the wagedistribution. Taking the case of Poland, rising inequality appears to be entirely accounted for byan increased incidence of workless households. This rise in workless households derives fromtwo phenomena: rising participation in post-compulsory education and earlier retirement. Also inPoland, though there is no change in hourly wage inequality, structural change has had clearimpacts of the distribution of wages with increased wage premia to education, to growing sectorsand geographically advantaged regions in the economy and to senior occupations.en_US
