A skill-biased technology change increases the productivity of skilled workers relative to that of unskilled workers. This increases the marginal productivity of skilled workers, causing the demand for their labor and their wages to increase. Conversely, such technology decreases the labor demand for unskilled workers and lowers their wages.
