This paper investigates the presence of wage discrimination by race for females. The empirical model is similar to that applied by Johnson (1978) who restricted his data to males in the labor force. A major difference between the Johnson application and this paper is the choice of industrial classification. The present study divides observations into professional and managerial, clerical, manufacturing and construction, or a residual class of industry occupational categories. The data were drawn from the NLS of Older Men and Mature Women. The results provide evidence of reserve wage advantages by race for females after controlling for differences in human capital acquisitions by an analysis of covariance wage rate specifications.
