Abstract: This article studies the inequality in the labour market that occurs among employed people and has to do with the fact that the wage earnings differ across employees. In particular, we review the factors that theoretically may explain the degree of wage inequality and the incidence of low wage employment and examine the data concerning these issues for the developed countries. Accordingly, a comparative international and temporal perspective is adopted, since not only the existence of differences across countries is examined but also its evolution over time.
