Do foreign-owned firms pay more?: evidence from the Indonesian manufacturing sector 1990-99

Ann Harrison () and Jason. Scorse

ILO Working Papers from International Labour Organization

Abstract: Finds that wage premiums paid by foreign establishments during the 1990s were robust to the inclusion of worker characteristics. Suggests that the higher wage premiums may be due to a foreign firm's higher spending for training, partly with the intention to retain workers.
