Workplace Employee Representation in Europe

Presentation to the Advisory Committee of the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (Eurofound), Brussels

Contingent Pay, Wages and Worker Wellbeing

Employers can motivate employees by paying for individual performance through for instance piece rates or commissions; or by paying for group performance through share ownership, profit sharing, all-employee stock options; or by offering workers gifts or efficiency wages in the hope that workers will reciprocate with greater effort. Does the form of remuneration affect worker well being differently when the firm does well relative to when it does poorly or when employees work under good or harsh working conditions?

Why are migrants paid more?

In efficient global labour markets for very high wage workers one might expect wage differentials between migrant and domestic workers to reflect differences in labour productivity. However, using panel data on all worker-firm matches in a single industry over a seven year period we find a substantial wage penalty for domestic workers which persists within firms and is only partially accounted for by individual labour productivity. We show that the differential partly reflects the superstar status of migrant workers.
