Abstract

Recently the need for utilizing the capacity of women unemployed is highly emphasized as a counter measure to the expected sharp decrease of labor force due to rapid aging process and low birth rate. However, the economic status of women compared to men does not seem to be matched with the importance and expected role of women. Why do female workers earn much less than male workers? By using the decomposition method, this study analyzed the wage gap between male and female workers in Korea for the past 20 years with focus on the effect of education. The contribution of education differences to gender wage gap decreased constantly since 1990, while that of experience differences increased constantly. For both education and experience, a large portion of the wage gap came from differences in university education and experience level of more than 10 years. (The rest omitted)
