Abstract

Considers the role of multinational enterprise in the determination of relative wages. Multinationality of the firm is incorporated in a wage‐bargaining model with asymmetric information. Indicates that the impact of multinational enterprise on wages depends on the profitability and structure of production of individual firms. Presents empirical evidence in support of the predictions which follow from the theory.
