Labor Standards in the United States and Canada
AbstractBlock, Roberts, and Clarke offer a method for comparing labor standards across political jurisdictions. They then apply this method to the United States and Canada, an exercise that allows them to settle the long-running dispute over whether or not Canada has higher standards than the U.S., and if so, to what degree.
