This research seeks to determine if equally qualified college-educated men receive more compensation than college-educated women do after several years of experience in the labor force. The empirical model includes several variables to account for investments in human capital, which will help to establish if the individuals are equally qualified. The variables include controls for education, mobility, migration, and area of residence.
