ABSTRACT
The article presents a study on the difference between the effects of white-collar unions and blue-collar unions on wages in the U.S. manufacturing industry. The study shows that the effect of unions of clerical workers on wage differentials in manufacturing is smaller than the influence of blue-collar unions. The estimated wage effect of unions of white-collar unions is five percent, while 20 percent for blue-collar unions. These findings confirm the notion that white-collar employees have different work aims.
