The national minimum wage debate: looking beyond a narrow focus on labour markets The national minimum wage debate: looking beyond a narrow focus on labour markets
(0 votes)

This article questions the approach of most contributions to the debate on a national minimum wage which adopt a narrow view of labour markets and accept that the structure of the economy will remain essentially as it is. The authors argue that a national minimum wage, at a level to be determined through careful research, must be part of a well‐designed package of longer‐term policy reforms that look beyond the labour market and support employment growth through investment.
