Abstract

Der vorliegende Aufsatz untersucht anhand von Mikrodaten aus der Beschäftigtenstatistik die Lohn- und Beschäftigungseffekte der Mindestlohnregelungen, die durch das Entsendegesetz für alle gewerblichen Arbeiter im deutschen Baugewerbe im Jahr 1997 in Kraft traten. Angewendet wird ein Differenz-von-Differenzen Ansatz. Wir entwickeln eine Methode, die trotz fehlender Information über geleistete Arbeitsstunden eine Identifikation des Effekts erlaubt. Im Unterschied zu anderen Untersuchungen wird die Größe von Treatment- und Kontrollgruppe nicht exogen vorgegeben, sondern nach dem Maximum-Likelihood-Kriterium bestimmt. Unsere Ergebnisse zeigen für das Bauhauptgewerbe sowohl in Ost- als auch in Westdeutschland positive Lohneffekte der Mindestlohnregelung. Bezüglich der Beschäftigungswirkung ergeben sich negative Effekte für Ostdeutschland, positive, statistisch allerdings nicht bzw. nur schwach signifikante Effekte für Westdeutschland.
