Taiwan’s Information Society and Wage Inequality

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Information societies are often linked to increasing economic inequality because of a tendency toward growing wage disparity. This paper will explore whether Taiwan experienced a similar phenomenon, will analyze the sources of this trend, and will also identify the reasons for this rise in wage disparity during the transition to an information society.
The research found that like other information societies, Taiwan underwent a growing economic inequality when developing its information economy and informatization. The main cause of Taiwan’s increasing wage inequality has been the rise of information intensive industries, and the specific sources of this increasing inequality are the enlarging wage gaps between information and traditional industries; between professional skilled workers and less professional, less skilled workers; and between workers with higher education and workers with less education. In addition, the statistical analysis supports the claim that informatization is closely related to the increased wage and income inequality.
