Wage structure in the supermarket industry 1984-1993

A number of studies have used estimation procedures to model wage equations to account for union self-selection endogeneity. However, no recent study has examined the supermarket industry using these various procedures using an extended year data set. This Plan B Paper uses standard ordinary least squares, full-information maximum likelihood, and an instrumental variables approach to estimate the coefficients in the standard wage determination equation. It uses data from the Current Population Survey from 1984 - 1993, a period of declining real wages and of declining union influence.
