Abstract

This article investigates whether the trade liberalization introduced in Brazil by the end of the 1980s affected the structure of employment and wage. We use data from the manufacturing sector from 1987 to 1998 and found evidences that the higher trade flow affected the inter-industry employment shares and wage premia. We also found that skilled and unskilled workers were differently affected by trade liberalization.
