''The role of computer use and English proficiency in gender wage inequality: Taiwanese evidence''
( 2007, Vol. 10 No.16 )
This paper uses the Blinder-Oaxaca decomposition and accounts for potential identification bias in order to shed light on the role of computer use as well as English ability on the gender wage differential in Taiwan. The results show that both computer use and English proficiency benefit female wage earners and contribute to an equalization of the gender wage gap.
