Abstract

Das Mindestlohn-Kompendium trägt alle wichtigen Informationen zusammen, die in der Mindestlohndebatte interessant sind. Zuerst werden die verschiedenen Arten von Mindestlöhnen dargestellt. Dann werden die Mindestlohnregelungen in Europa präsentiert. Neben den monatlichen Mindestlöhnen und den relativen Beträgen im Vergleich zum Durchschnittslohn gibt es auch eine Übersicht über die Mindeststundenlöhne. Anschließend werden alle gesetzlichen Mindestlohnregelungen in Deutschland besprochen. Die theoretische Analyse des Mindestlohns ergibt, dass er sich nur dann negativ auf den Arbeitsmarkt auswirkt, wenn er höher als der Gleichgewichtslohn ist. Empirische Analysen über den Mindestlohn in Deutschland ergeben, dass sich der Mindestlohn im ostdeutschen Bauhauptgewerbe und im gesamtdeutschen Dachdeckerhandwerk negativ auf die Beschäftigung ausgewirkt hat. Internationale Studien ergeben, dass in 56 Prozent der Studien der Mindestlohn einen negativen Effekt auf den Arbeitsmarkt hat. In nur 9 Prozent der Studien ist eine positive Wirkung festzustellen. --
