Abstract: Wage discrimination has been widely investigated so that I try to contribute to this strand of the literature showing if there is evidence to exist in Italy for the period from 2000 to 2012 by using panel data from SHIW. Moreover, I focus the investigation on the informal labour market but I also do on the formal one. To get this, I perform Oaxaca-Blinder decomposition model. The main goal of these estimates is observing whether the results change when I include a variable to control non-random selection processes. In accordance with this, I obtain that gender wage gap is larger among formal workers when I control for this correction term than when I do not control for it and smaller among informal workers. Finally, I perform a robustness check to observe how this discrimination affects in each part of the informal workers distribution.
