Wage mobility in times of higher earnings disparities: is it easier to climd the ladder?

Iga Magda

No 2008-10, ISER Working Paper Series from Institute for Social and Economic Research

Abstract: In this paper I study the earnings mobility in Poland and in the UK. Using both transition matrices and a wage mobility index I rst document changes in the overall wage mobility in Poland across time, then compare mobility patterns among Polish and British employees. I focus in particular on low wage workers and analyze their transitions within the earnings distribution and between di¤erent labour market states. Finally, I demonstrate that changes in the earnings mobility in Poland do not seem to be linked to changes in the overall wage dispersion.
