Abstract

We argue that to a better understanding of the causes of unemployment in Morocco, it seems very important to study endogenously the consequences of the interaction between the structure of the labor market and the presence of the minimum wage. Indeed, it was argued that unemployment in Morocco can be caused by the existence of monopsony power of firms offering jobs that do not seem quite decent to workers and this may also explain the large size of the informal sector. It is this fact which justifies the establishment of an appropriate policy in the minimum wage and study its impact on employment in Morocco. This is our current research agenda.
