The gender reservation wage gap: evidence from British panel data

By S. Brown, J. Roberts and K. Taylor

Abstract

Our findings suggest the existence of a gender reservation wage gap, with a differential of around 10%. The presence of children, particularly pre-school age children, plays an important role in explaining this differential. For individuals without children, the explained component of the differential is only 5%, which might indicate that perceived discrimination in the labour market influences the reservation wage setting of females
