THE IMPACT OF OFFSHORING ON THE EUROPEAN LABOUR MARKET
Keywords: offshoring, labour market, labour productivity
AbstractThis study shows the differences in wages of workers from the EU countries according to various levels of
education. It also shows the level of offshoring in the analysed countries and its impact on the salaries. It
was found that the largest wage gap between the high-skilled and the low-skilled workers exists both in the
countries of Central and Eastern Europe and in the countries such as Germany and Portugal. Results of the
analysis show that offshoring contributes to a decrease in wages of workers in the countries of the European
Union. Nonetheless, the highest decrease in wages is visible among workers with the lowest skills, and the
lowest decrease can be seen among workers with the highest skills.
