Abstract:
"During the 1987-1993 period average real urban full time wages and employment in Mexico grew 30 and 22 percent respectively. After controlling for the changing labor force quality, all education-experience skill classes have experienced significant employment and real wage growth. This growth was accompanied by a large increase in wage dispersion within and across skill classes. The relative wage patterns for Mexico mimic those of developed countries: the premium for skills is rising."
