Employment effects of state minimum wages for women: Three historical cases re-examined
Studies of the employment effects of minimum wage laws have generally been interpreted as showing no relationship between the increases in wages and subsequent changes in employment of the groups affected. Using the data from three leading studies often cited in support of this conclusion, the author of this article argues that the employment effects have not only been significantly related to the minimum wage orders but also that they have been consistent with the assumption of a negatively inclined demand curve for labor. He concludes from his re-examination of the data that, with reference to wage-employment problems, orthodox wage theory deserves more respect than it has been granted by many economists and policy-makers.
