Social Norms and Minimum Wages
AbstractThis paper examines the role played in the labour market by norms of need and focuses, in particular, on the relationship between social norms and the regulation of minimum wge rates. It develops a theoretical model to describe the possible nature of this relationship and utilises the results of the 1995 Australian round of the International Survey of Economic Attitudes (ISEA) to analyse the attitudes of Australians to minimum wage controls.
