A wage Curve for Australia?

S. Kennedy and Jeff Borland ()

CEPR Discussion Papers from Centre for Economic Policy Research, Research School of Economics, Australian National University

Abstract: Evidence from a range of countries suggests the existence of a "wage curve" -an inverse relation between earnings of individual workers and the rate of unemployment in the region in which they live. If such a relation does exist it has important implications for labour market theory and policy. This paper examines the robustness of the wage curve relation in Australia and attempts tp provide an interpretation of the source of the wage curve.
