  H. Gregg Lewis' estimates of the relative wage effect of unionism between and are routinely cited though they have rarely been subject to scrutiny. This paper extends Lewis' data to and, in particular, we construct a series on union membership that links up with the data available in the 's from the Current Population Surveys. In , over 90 percent of the migrant stock hailed from Northern and Western Europe, particularly from the Great Britain, Ireland and Germany.

Changes over time in union relative wage effects in Great Britain and the United States David G. Blanchflower* As all economics data files have weaknesses – measurement error, unmeasured variables, sample survey quirks – and all model specifications are questionable.

This paper uses broadly comparable micro data at the level of the individual to examine the extent to which union relative wage effects vary across groups and through time. The main findings may be summarized as follows. a) The union wage gap averages 15% in the US and 10% in Great Britain.

The union effect on total nonunion wages is nearly comparable to the effect of unions on total union wages. To explore these changes in the private sector industry union wage premium over time we ran panel fixed effects estimates. Regression results, reported in columns 1 and 2 of Table 3, estimate the impact of the lagged premium, lagged unemployment, and a time trend on the level of the industry-level wage.

Further, a recent US study using micro-level data that permits the authors to study union effects over a much longer period than existing work, has qualified the baseline variant of orthodoxy, noting among other things that union density has throughout the sample period – been inversely correlated with the relative skill of union.

These developments are consistent with a finding of decreasing union wage premium over time in the United States (Bratsberg and Ragan, ) and in Canada (Fang and Verma, ). When a. The earlier evidence for Great Britain also shows a union wage premium that could be as high as about 18 percent, but there is a great deal of variability in the estimates of the union wage.In the difference between average union and non-union hourly wages was $ greater in states with corporate tax rates below four percent than in states with tax rates of nine percent and above.Blanchflower, David G.
