Remuneration for work is the main source of livelihood for a big part of all employees. Significant changes occurred in its levels and relations between particular categories of employees during the period of economic system transformation. The research project aimed at determining changes in relations between wages of employees in private and public sectors, both women and men, employees on worker and cognate jobs and employees on nonworker jobs, as well as employees with different education levels. The survey showed that the years 1991-1997 witnessed a significant growth of differentiation between wages of employed women and men, persons with different educational backgrounds, and persons on worker and non-worker jobs. A particularly high level of variations in wages collected by persons with different qualifications and educational levels was observed in the private sector. It is an important finding, because the expected further growth of the private sector’s share in the Polish economy can lead to a further deepening of wage differentiation with all its consequences.
