Union Choices Affect Wages
- 34 Downloads
“Union choices affect wages.” This sentence does not mean the same as “Unions raise wages.” It is well known that union membership raises wages. There is now a very large econometric literature on this topic using a wide variety of analytic methodologies and controls, all of which show a positive union wage effect, although the size differs from one study to another (xcLewis 1963); (xcParsley 1980); (xcFreeman and Medoff 1984); (xcRosen 1969); (xcMishel 1986); (xcPodgursky 1986).
