Studies wage dispersion across firms and time in a specific industry that exhibits competitive features - the Portuguese clothing industry in the 1991-1994 period. By drawing on a large matched employer-employee panel, obtains the following results: the workers' firm affiliation plays an important role in wage determination; there is a sizeable and persistent dispersion of firm-fixed effects, winch is also similar for workers of different tenure levels and occupations; workers in high-turnover firms are generally paid less. It is believed that these findings are not consistent with a simple competitive labour market model.
