Spillovers of equal treatment in wage offers

Kohei Kawamura, Jozsef Sakovics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We analyse a labour matching model with wage posting, where –reflecting
institutional constraints –firms cannot differentiate their wage offers within
certain subsets of workers. Inter alia, we find that the presence of impersonal
wage offers leads to wage compression, which propagates to the wages for high
productivity workers who receive personalised offers.
