As in Blanchflower and Oswald (1994), the estimated unemployment elasticity of pay across regions is approximately - 0.1. Workers in low unemployment regions earn more pay indicating the presence of profit sharing. Workers in more restructured regions are shown to receive higher premiums in pay indicating compensation for exposure to risk during restructuring.||Funding Details:||Marie Curie Research Training Grant ERB4001GT965163||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||LICOS Centre for Transition Economics||Copyright (published version):||2000, LICOS Centre for Transition Economics||Keywords:||Wage determination;Unemployment;Restructuring;Polish Regions||Subject LCSH:||Labor market--Poland
