Do young firms pay less? Previous studies have argued that employees earn less when they join young firms. Using US Census employer-employee matched data, we confirm lower average wages at new firms. However, after including worker fixed effects, nearly two thirds of this decline disappears, suggesting differences in worker quality at new firms. Moreover, once we control for
firm fixed effects, absorbing time invariant firm quality, the wage difference between new and established firms becomes economically unimportant. Overall, our findings indicate that, for a given worker who has job opportunities at similar quality new and established firms, the expected wage penalty of going to work at the new firm are, on average, economically insignificant.
