In recent years Poland has received substantial flows of foreign direct investment.
This paper combines detailed labour market data with industry data from the Polish
manufacturing sector to examine the effects of these foreign direct investment flows on
wages and wage growth. The empirical evidence that we assemble suggests that workers
in industries with greater foreign presence enjoy higher wages and higher wage growth. In
addition, the foreign presence effect appears to stimulate wage growth all along the wage
distribution and does not appear to be responsible for any increases in wage inequality.
