Abstract
This paper primarily examines the impact of gender on the monthly income of the working
class in Punjab, Pakistan. The relevant data have been obtained from Pakistan Labour Force
Survey (2008-9). A special case of quantile regression i.e. the median regression is used for
the desired investigation. In addition to gender, the other covariates are marital status, area
of residence, level of education, job type and status etc. As in many other regions and
countries, the male workers in Punjab tend to have higher average income and the income
tend to increase with increase in level of education. The workers with permanent jobs earn
more as compared to temporary job holders
