SOUZA, Wallace Patrick Santos de Farias; ZIEGELMANN, Flávio Augusto  and  FIGUEIREDO, Erik Alencar de. Uma Nota Sobre o Prêmio Salarial em Empresas Exportadoras Brasileiras. Rev. Bras. Econ. [online]. 2020, vol.74, n.2, pp.221-232.  Epub July 22, 2020. ISSN 1806-9134.

This note investigates the relationship between the export status of companies and the workers salary, testing whether the export leads to a wage employees of foreign companies or whether exporting companies were already paying a higher salary before starting to export. To achieve that, we consider an identified panel data employer-employee from Brazil for the years 2003 to 2013. The results confirm the existence of a self-selection mechanism, where companies pay higher salaries because they are more productive and, consequently, become able to enter the export market.

Keywords : Status de exportação; salários.
