Dear Joao Ricardo,

you could also try out my margeff with the link(log) option.

This will give you partial changes in the expected value of wages,
instead of percentage changes. An advantage is that you save some
minutes of typing the foreach loop, which was suggested by Maarten.
Disadvantage is that the output is not percentage but absolute change,
if this is a disadvantage at all...
