Do workers share in firm success? Pass-through estimates for New Zealand

Profitability Wages Economic growth New Zealand

This document studies the extent to which firm financial performance is passed on to workers in the form of higher wages and the degree to which this pass-through has changed over the period 2002-2018. Findings demonstrate that the overall pass-through is relatively stable over time, the contribution of worker sorting declines dramatically to explain almost none of the estimated pass-through.
