The main aim of this paper is to underline the importance of night work in Italy, as previously done by Hamermesh (1995) for the U.S. and Germany, giving evidence that night work is mainly performed by low-skilled workers, thus underlining the importance of non-monetary returns to work. This paper uses the data, collected from the Bank of Italy 1998 Survey on Italian households, which allow us to estimate the impact that both the individual and job characteristics, such as education, gender, sector of economic activity and firm size, have on the probability of working at night.We estimated wage equations for employees working also at night and employees working only in the day-time taking account of the selectivity problem, and we found that the mean wage of the employees working only in the day-time is larger than the expected wage of an arbitrary individual with the same observed characteristics working also at night.
