The Gender Wage Gap in Europe: What Can We Learn Using Linked Employer-Employee Data?
The purpose of the workshop is four-fold, namely to: - Promote understanding of the role employers play in accounting for the gender wage gap GWG; - Establish the size of the GWG across countries and how the gap varies when accounting for the identity of the employer; - Identify mechanisms, which help explain the size of the GWG, e.g. discrimination, worker sorting, worker segmentation, monopsony employer power, rent-sharing, compensating wage differentials; - Discuss methodological challenges and avenues for future research for academics using LEED to investigate the GWG.
