The Employment Effect in Retail Trade of California's 1988 Minimum Wage Increase
This paper considers the labor market effect of California's 1988 minimum wage increase in the retail trade industry. Two sources of variation--county variation and cross-industry variation--are exploited in estimating the effect of the minimum wage change. Both empirical approaches suggest that the textbook economic analysis of minimum wages pertains; employment growth in California's low-wage retail trade sector appears to have been tempered by the minimum wage increase.
