The establishment-size wage premium: evidence from European countries

Thierry Lallemand, Robert Plasman () and Francois Rycx ()

No 05-07.RS, DULBEA Working Papers from ULB -- Universite Libre de Bruxelles

Abstract: This study examines the magnitude and determinants of the establishment-size wage premium in five European countries using a unique harmonised matched employer-employee data set. Findings show the existence of a significant positive wage premium in all countries, even when controlling for labour quality, working conditions, monitoring, sectoral and regional effects, bargaining institutions, job stability, and concentration of skilled workers. In crossnational perspective, results support the existence of an inverse relationship between the size wage gap and the degree of corporatism. Final results indicate that the size wage premium is generally larger in the manufacturing sector and for blue-collar workers.
