This paper examines parental schooling effects on wages and tenure among production workers in manufacturing industries in Thailand, with unique microdata available from recent longitudinal employee surveys. The aim of this paper is to disentangle the intergenerational correlations of schooling and earnings, often observed but underling factors not carefully identified in the literature. We found that mother’s schooling raises both child schooling and, more importantly, tenure of workers. With longituginal data available from two points in time, the latter finding is robust to censoring problems in the observed tenure distribution. Since a longer tenure means more accumulation of firm-specific human capital and production experience capital, investment in female education has intergenerational spillovers not only to schooling investments but to the accumulation of specific human capital in manufacturing industries.
