Summary/Abstract: Since the end of the 1980s Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union have been experiencing a fundamental restructuring of their economic system toward a market economy. In this new phase, one of the many challenges faced by policy makers is to formulate adequate labor market policies and design suitable safety nets .In an attempt to provide some insight into the functioning of the Romanian labor market, this paper focuses on the understanding of wage determination in general and the extent of gender discrimination in specific. Discerning the differences in wages that stem from endowments such as education, experience and demographic characteristics is in fact critical in assessing the likely outcomes of the ongoing process of economic adjustment in the labor markets. We choose a case study of October 2008 to present the level of wages and the distribution of population from the point of view of occupational sectors.
