HUESCA REYNOSO, Luis  and  LLAMAS REMBAO, Linda Irene. Crisis and Resilience in Gender and Wages: The Manufacturing Sector in Mexico and on the Northern Border. Frontera norte [online]. 2019, vol.31, e2025.  Epub Feb 05, 2020. ISSN 2594-0260.

This study analyzes men’s and women’s wages in the manufacturing sector on Mexico’s northern border, with a specific focus on the years 2005, 2009, and 2017. Salary profiles are estimated with spline regressions corrected for selection bias, based on disaggregated data from various issues of the National Occupation and Employment Survey (ENOE). The findings explain how women on the border enjoy an advantage over those from the rest of the country in terms of human capital. However, their wages are subject to certain glass ceilings. Men are resilient in this process and their wages recover faster than women’s.

Keywords : wages; human capital; spline regression; northern border; Mexico.
