Abstract

A general selection model is estimated in which workers select across four labor markets-private/nonunion, private/union, public/nonunion, and public/union. Evidence is found of positive selection bias in the private/nonunion sector and of negative selection bias in the public/union sector. Union wage differentials in the public and private sectors as well as public/private wage differentials are then calculated. Two different types of wage differentials are contrasted. We discuss when it is appropriate to use each type of differential.
