Trade firms and wages theory and evidence

Exporters are larger, more productive, and pay higher wages than other firms within Further evidence relating firm heterogeneity and trade participation comes 

Around 14 percent of firms pay more than 50 percent of the industry mean and 16 percent pay less than 50 percent of the industry mean. Our theory implies that firm wages increase with firm profits. Unfortunately, reliable measures of profits are not available. They identify the effects of input-trade liberalization on firms' wages and on firm productivity depending on the trade orientation of the firm by including interaction terms between input tariffs How does trade liberalization affect wages? This is the first paper to consider in theory and data how the impact of final and intermediate input tariff cuts on workers' wages varies with the global engagement of their firm. Our model predicts that a fall in output tariffs lowers wages at import-competing firms, but boosts wages at exporting firms.

This paper explores the role of inward foreign direct investment (FDI) as a determinant of domestic firms’ wages, namely wage spillovers. We first construct a theoretical model to demonstrate that the presence of FDI firms affects domestic firms’ expected average wages via productivity spillovers and a cut-off capability.

Around 14% of firms pay more than 50% of the industry mean and 16% pay less than 50% of the industry mean. Our theory implies that firm wages increase with firm profits. Unfortunately, reliable mea- sures of profits are not available. However, theory also suggests that profits increase in revenues. This is the first paper to consider in theory and data how the impact of final and intermediate input tariff cuts on workers' wages varies with the global engagement of their firm. Our model predicts that a fall in output tariffs lowers wages at import-competing firms, but boosts wages at exporting firms.

Input tariff reduction generates a cost‐saving effect which benefits firms whilst output tariff reduction results in a competition effect which may hurt domestic firms. Given the fair wage argument, trade liberalisation may affect wages across firms due to the joint effects on firm profit.
