Impact of international trade on wages and on the employment structure in France

University of Mannheim - MANNHEIM - 2014

Many studies have shown that a company’s general performance is what determines their involvement in international trade, which in turn can increase their productivity. Productivity gains will then drive up wages as the labor market reacts. It was also proven that effect on wages are often quite heterogeneous according to the type of task and level of qualification. Globalization also implies increased competition which can have a negative effect on companies and workers.
