Abstract

This paper investigates if the exporting firms belonging to two rather large industries in India, namely, machinery and chemicals, display positive wage movements as functions of export earnings and a vector of important explanatory variables. In this context, we use a number of control variables that alongside the volume of exports can also explain the direction and magnitude of wage movements in exporting firms.
