Firm Size Wage Differentials in Switzerland: Evidence from Job Changers


Winter-Ebmer, Rudolf; Zweimüller, Josef (1999). Firm Size Wage Differentials in Switzerland: Evidence from Job Changers. Working paper series / Institute for Empirical Research in Economics No. 1, University of Zurich.

Abstract

Using information on job changes and search behavior of workers and controlling for endogenousnmobility we study firm-size wage differentials in Switzerland. We find that the observed crosssectionalnfirm size premium cannot be explained exclusively by worker heterogeneity. Almost 50n% of the cross-section differential is a firm-size effect.
