Abstract:     
This paper is an empirical study of the development of labour market participation and wage differentials between males and females in Greece between 1988 and 1994. There is little known about the position of women in the Greek labour market. This paper uses survey data generated by the Greek National Statistical Service. The decision to engage in paid employment and the resulting remuneration are studied using selectivity-corrected earnings estimations. Oaxaca and Ransom decompositions and counterfactual analysis show that the adverse treatment of female labour market participation is the largest identifiable reason why the wage gap is there and why it increased between 1988 and 1994.
