This paper investigates the inter-industry wage differentials in Brazil. We examine the impacts of industry affiliation at the three-digit level, and control our regressions with firm variables such as plant size, nationality of capital, and international trade, among several other labor variables. Therefore, we could access the impact of industry affiliation on wages taking into account supply and demand characteristics. We found evidence that value added, profits and technology at the industry level affect the wage dispersion in Brazil.
