Economic Modelling, 2018, vol. 70, issue C, 174-185

Abstract: This paper aims at assessing the effect of significant increase in the minimum wage observed in Poland in 2008–2009 on gender wage gap. To check the potentially differentiated effects throughout wage distribution authors analyse the impact of minimum wage increase separately for different age and educational groups. Innovative methodological approach which combines the non-parametric approach of DiNardo et al. (1996) with Oaxaca (1973) – Blinder (1973) decomposition is proposed.
