Our paper studies the efects of daily dialect-speaking on hourly wages of native Dutch workers. The unconditional diference in median hourly wage between Standard Dutch speakers and dialect speakers is about 10% for males and 8% for females. Taking into account diferences in personal characteristics, family characteristics and geographical diferences, wage diferences are reduced with about 6%-points.
