When the taste for discrimination is small or competition is weak, the policy removes job segregation and the wage gap completely. However, with a bigger taste for discrimination or stronger competition, equal pay legislation leads to more job segregation, and sometimes minority workers end up earning less than before. Profits of discriminating firms might increase, and discrimination can persist in the long run, although it would have disappeared without the policy.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2009</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Scandinavian Journal of Economics 111 (2009), 1, pp. 51-71</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Kaas, Leo</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
