This chapter examines wage inequality in urban China. Increased wage discrimination against women and minorities was observed in favour of Communist Party members. The market forces operating in the growing private sector and the relative immunity of the state sector from those forces increased wage segmentation among types of ownership. Provincial differences in the pace of reform and economic growth created spatial segmentation in wages that could not be removed by the equilibrating movement of labour.

Keywords:   China, wage inequality, labour market reform, urban wages, wage discrimination
