Productivity and wage gaps across firms

Large manufacturing firms tend to pay higher wages than SMEs. In Germany for example large firms paid a wage premium of over 50% of medium-size firms and over double that of smaller and micro enterprises. Similarly, large differentials also occurred in Belgium, France and the Netherlands. However, wage differentials were significantly smaller in some other countries, such as in Finland and Slovenia.
