The Urban Wage Premium in Imperfect Labor Markets

The Urban Wage Premium in Imperfect Labor Markets <p>ABSTRACT:</p><p>Using administrative data for West Germany, we investigate whether part of the urban wage premium stems from greater competition in denser labor markets. We show that employers possess less wage-setting power in denser markets. We further document that an important part of the observed urban wage premia can be explained by greater competition in denser labor markets.</p> http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Human Resources University of Wisconsin Press
