Abstract
Celem opracowania jest przedstawienie związków między produktywnością a wynagrodzeniem czynnika pracy między sektorem rolniczym a sektorami pozarolniczymi w wybranych krajach UE. Problem badawczy odnosi się do odpowiedzi na pytanie, czy wynagrodzenie czynnika pracy i jego zmiany są powiązane ze zmianami produktywności pracy. Odpowiadając na to pytanie, wykorzystano zarówno statyczne, jak i dynamiczne podejście. Badania oparto na własnym podejściu analitycznym, a odpowiednie dane statystyczne z lat 1995-2013 wykorzystano do weryfikacji hipotezy badawczej. W świetle badań relacje wynagrodzeń do produktywności znacząco się różnią między sektorami i krajami. Szczególnie w przypadku sektora rolnego wynagrodzenie czynnika pracy i jego zmiany jest słabo powiązane z jego produktywnością. (abstrakt oryginalny)

The aim of this paper is to investigate the relationship between labour productivity and labour remuneration among agricultural and non-agricultural sectors in selected EU countries. The issue under investigation pertains to the question of whether remunerations for labour and their rate of growth are attributable to changes in labour productivity. The problem is analyzed via static and dynamic approaches. To carry out the research, the authors' own analytical approach is used, while appropriate statistical data for 1995-2013 and methods are used to verify the hypothesis. The conclusion of the study is that the relationship between remuneration and productivity substantially differ across sectors and countries. Especially in the agricultural sector, one can observe that the level of remuneration and growth are weakly related to productivity growth. (original abstract)
