Languages of publication
Providing equal opportunities to both men and women has become an important policy issue to most developed countries' governments. One of it’s main dimensions is gender equality on the labor market. That includes: market participation, employment and wages. In a workplace equal treatment can be observed through wages. The aim of this paper is to investigate determinants of wage differentials between women and men of equal productivity on Polish labor market. Using Blinder-Oaxaca decomposition allows to: measure wage differences, return on individual characteristics and gender pay discrimination.
