Gender, wages and discrimination in the USSR: a study of a Russian industrial town
University of Gothenburg .ORCID iD: 0000-0003-1756-5705

Abstract [en]

Male and female wage-equations are estimated from survey-data from the city of Taganrog in 1989, the first such estimates on data collected in the USSR. Reductions in working hours for low-paid female professionals, resulting in relatively high hourly rates, encouraged women to acquire higher education, while maintaining an unequal and conservative gender division of labour. Decomposition of the wage gap shows strong indications of discrimination. A wage-function estimated from the pooled sample (as in Oaxaca and Ransom, 1994) ‘explains’ a larger share of the gender gap, but does so because it disregards aspects of discrimination.
