Este artículo presenta una revisión sumaria de la literatura sobre los efectos del salario mínimo, tanto en Estados Unidos como en Colombia, y de las experiencias colombiana e internacional en lo referente a instituciones y prácticas de fijación del salario mínimo. El repaso de las experiencias desde la perspectiva de la literatura mencionada conduce a algunas reflexiones sobre la inflexibilidad relativa de las instituciones latinoamericanas frente a lo que es usual en Estados Unidos y Europa Occidental. A pesar de la alta incidencia del salario mínimo en Colombia, se hace evidente la carencia de estudios de mayor trascendencia sobre sus efectos. Se sugiere que ha habido un excesivo uso del mismo por fuera del mercado laboral como mecanismo de indexación.
