Abstract: We study the determinants of the public-private earning gap for different levels of schooling of Brazilian workers. First, using the current earnings as the variable of interest, it is estimated an earnings gap favorable to the less educated workers from the public sector. On the other hand, for workers with higher qualification the earnings gap disappears or becomes favorable to the private sector. Further, we considerate the different regimes of retirement in Brazil by creating the variable Present Value of Work Contract (PVWC). This variable is a measure of the life time earnings for each individual of our database. Different from the results of the current earnings, we found that the PVWC gap is favorable to the public sector even for the most schooling group of workers.
