Abstract

Am 1. Januar 2015 wurde in Deutschland ein flächendeckender, gesetzlicher Mindestlohn in Höhe von 8,50 Euro je Stunde eingeführt. Dieser soll zum 1. Januar 2017 erstmals angepasst werden. Die Anpassung soll dabei laut Mindestlohngesetz die Auswirkungen des Mindestlohns auf den Mindestschutz der Arbeitnehmerinnen und Arbeitnehmer, auf die Wettbewerbsbedingungen und auf das Beschäftigungsniveau berücksichtigen. Besonders umfangreiche Wirkungen sind im Freistaat Sachsen zu erwarten, da der Mindestlohn hier eine besonders hohe Reichweite entfaltet. Vor diesem Hintergrund hat die Industrie- und Handelskammer Chemnitz die Dresdner Niederlassung des ifo Instituts beauftragt, die bisherigen Auswirkungen des flächendeckenden Mindestlohns in der gewerblichen Wirtschaft im Freistaat Sachsen zu untersuchen.
