Abstract: Child care workers receive low hourly pay, very modest returns to education, experience and job tenure, and have high rates of job turnover. Such are the stylized facts from a number of studies which have convinced some analysts to characterize child care workers as participants in a secondary, and disadvantaged, labour market. This paper uses recent Canadian data to challenge this characterization and to examine the disputed effects of auspice (non-profit vs. forprofit status) on wages. In contrast to Mocan and Viola (1997), however, improved controls for the differential availability of resources and firm size does not make the effects of auspice disappear. All else equal, the wage premium in different types of non-profits varies from 7% – 24%.Download in PDF:
