Wage Inequality and Segregation by Skill
Michael Kremer () and
No 5718, NBER Working Papers from National Bureau of Economic Research, Inc
Evidence from the US, Britain, and France suggests that recent growth in wage inequality has been accompanied by greater segregation of high- and low-skill workers into separate firms. A model in which workers of different skill-levels are imperfect substitutes can simultaneously account for these increases in segregation and inequality either through technological change, or, more parsimoniously, through observed changes in the skill-distribution
