dc.description.abstractWe analyse the Polish wage and unemployment structure between 1992and 1995 on the basis of the Polish Labour Force Survey. It is shown that within thisperiod wage inequality has stabilised. Surprisingly, wage inequality is lower in theprivate than in the public sector. Our test results show that, contrary to the publicsector, there are no gender differences in the valuation of human capital in the privatesector. This supports the hypothesis that the transition towards a market economypromotes the equality of the sexes. Although the higher?education wage premium hasrisen significantly over the observation period, the ceteris paribus wage differentialbetween white?collar and blue?collar workers is about zero. Indeed, we find thatblue?collar workers as well as workers in the mining, manufacturing, andconstruction industries have kept or improved their relative wage position despite anincrease in unemployment for these groups. There is therefore significant evidence forrigidities in the Polish labour market.en_US
