      Explain any other changes that will happen because of the adjustment, such as the employee becoming exempt from overtime wages. Let the employee know when the change goes into effect. When you adjust an employee’s wages, make sure you document the change and why you made it. You should have records of your employee wage decisions. I. Changes in the Structure of Wages Our first task is to document the changes in the wage structure that occurred during the 's as well as, for comparative pur-poses, the changes in the structure of wages that occurred in the 's. The analysis is based on imputed wage rates from ques-tions on usual weekly earnings and hours.

    In addition to percent differences, it is also common to express the gender pay gap as a simple ratio between wages. This is the measure adopted by the United States Census Bureau. By this measure, the gender wage gap is expressed as a percent (median earnings of women as share of median earnings of men) and it is always positive.   The differences between salary and wages are presented in this article in tabular form. Salary is the fixed amount of compensation which is paid for the performance of an employee. Wage is the variable amount of compensation which is paid on the basis of .

I begin by considering the usefulness of a simple supply-demand model of the labour market in accounting for the observed changes, then move on to discuss possible drivers.

Changes in the Wage Structure and Earnings Inequality Thus rising US wage inequality in the s and s has been accompanied by large. increases in wage differentials by skill group and by much greater residual inequality.

(within group wage dispersion). Some of the relevant factors are listed below. Compensating wage differentials - higher pay can often be some reward for risk-taking in certain jobs, working in poor conditions and having to work unsocial hours.; A reward for human capital - in a competitive labour market equilibrium, wage differentials compensate workers for (opportunity and direct) costs of human capital acquisition.

Economics Wage Differentials. The wage paid to workers varies greatly. These wage differentials are mostly the result of differences in worker ability and the workers' effort in performing the job, but may also result if the job is unionized, since the goal of labor unions is to increase compensation over and above what would otherwise be provided based on free market conditions.

Salary structures are an important component of effective compensation programs and help ensure that pay levels for groups of jobs are competitive externally and equitable internally.
