In this paper we replicate and extend the wage curve proposed by Blanchflower and Oswald (1990). Our replication only partly confirms their findings. Our extensions relate to gender effects and to a refinement of the unemployment measure. The results show that wage curves for males and females differ. For females unemployment both has a wage effect and a discouraged worker effect. ?? 1992.
